When YouTube switched the entire site over to the Google+ based comment system, I’m sure they thought they were doing what was best for everyone. Or, they didn’t care and they just wanted to increase traffic to Google+ for all sorts of financial reasons.
No, that can’t be it. A site that depends on the continued presence of content providers and users would never put financial gain in front of user satisfaction. . . would they?
Either way, they made the change and the Bob Army arrived – guns a blazing.
