The Community Reacts:
In response to his video, many fellow creators took to the comments to share their own opinions. In general, many influencers voiced that the platform is not doing enough to solve the issue, and as a result, many feel YouTube is ignoring the problem.
“At this point I am honestly starting to suspect YouTube is being willfully ignorant of the problem. There have been countless top creators who have directly brought this to YouTube’s attention, it’s been going on for literally years, and yet it persists. It’s especially bad when the spammers are all so similar, it’s unfathomable to me how YouTube hasn’t used their supposedly world-class AI technology to handle it. It seriously makes zero sense. Especially considering the spam filtering in Gmail is second to none.”– YouTuber ThioJoe, commenting on Jacksepticeye’s video.
“Can’t agree more bro.”– YouTuber CoryxKenshin, speaking on Jacksepticeye’s video.
