So recently i have seen these comments more and more with every single video.
Anyone else has the same experience?
They seem to find the video within the first hour it is live, which is quite interesting on its own.

Yeah I told these bastards to piss off the first time I saw them, haven't bothered me since - Makes me think it's an actual person behind the scenes

They piss me off, JP puts out a video commemorating a friend of his who lost his life and the comments are "Great video! Do you want to be friends?" - Fuck right off mate (Erm the bot, not you. Heh.)

Very wrong...

Flippin bots! Guys are running dozens to thousands of these types of accounts, all watching for newly uploaded videos.

Not sure there is much we can do except report the accounts. These types of accounts are easier to detect on YT internal side.

This makes it a bit more dangerous...
I'm going through my comments at the moment to see if there are any left that i hadn't removed yet..
Better be safe than sorry.

Yeah, and i know we talked about these channels in a topic (couldn't find it anymore, so hence the update here ;) ).

But that is some scary stuff if that is real. Considering some youtube accounts have been removed...

I watched the video and immediately thought about some of the spam comments I've been seeing - so I clicked through to see if there was an update since the original video. There has been and it looks like the spam bot and accounts being hijacked are two separate issues.

The video below is the update - its worth noting that at roughly the 5:45 mark the video shifts topics and the remainder is about rebranding his channel.

I haven't gotten either of these, but this morning I did get the sexy teens linked comment. I knew there was no way I was getting a legit comment five minutes after an upload.
