How to deal with hateful comments? 2012-07-30 05:06:06 Reply

I have a Youtube account where I post various video's ranging from video game discussions to reviews, etc, and everytime I upload a video, I always receive a small portion of hateful comments and they really discourage me and bring me down. These people say such rude things as if they personally know me. It just really affects me and I know it shouldn't, and I try to ignore it but it bothers me that some people have the nerve to so easily judge somebody based on something they do as a hobby. And most of the hateful comments aren't even related to my video's. They are just personal attacks. And I try to really put myself out there to hopefully make good video's and good content but I'm just kind of depressed now after so much shit talking. Any advice here?? Thanks people.

Grow thicker skin and ignore it.

Youtube has the ability to remove comments and block people from contacting you. If you feel like you're being harassed then use the tools that you have at your disposal. The answer is pretty clear if you ask me.

I try guys.. I try hard to ignore it. I guess I'm a sucker or something. I just always strive to do a good job and make an impression and hope people enjoy what I do, and I mean no harm at all, but it just bothers me when people discredit me like that, like I did something wrong as a person. I am just doing what I enjoy as a hobby. Not harming anybody. Why does that warrant any hate? You know what I mean..

The comments aren't really directed at the quality of my video's. Some have just attacked me about my personal self. Like, making fun of my voice, or making fun of my appearance in some of my Vlogs, or just saying that type of shit in general you know. Irrevelent stuff.

Angryness and Hatefulness entirely different things, and hatefulness isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Address the legit criticism and ignore the angry insults.

The problem is you're a little bitch. Quit that, then ignore the comments.

Give me a link of your vids so that I will dislike the comments of your haters and like your comments insulting them back.

a real, serious answer (even though it may not seem like it at first):

let the comments get to you, as much as possible

let the hateful comments bring you down as far as they can

it's only in that experience that you will understand what the comments really mean

let your emotions flare and then they will extinguish

Reply to them calling them faggots - works for me. But seriously, you should either just mess with them and laugh it off until they get bored because if you start whining and responding like this, they're just gonna' keep doing it. If you show them that you find their pitiful insults funny, then they'll give up.
You can always insult them too, make fun of any videos they've uploaded or favorited or anything. You might think "oh, I don't wanna' fall to their level" but when you're dealing with trolls, DO fall to their level. They're insulting you for no real reason whatsoever, so insult them back for no real reason whatsoever. Or laugh at them and make jokie responses like I said before WHATEVER BRO

If you can't handle being called "lolfaggot", you shouldn't be on the fucking Internet.

Come back at them with something even more hateful and shatter their confidence until quitting the internet is their only option.

Isn't there an option to block people from commenting on your videos?
