    I don't think people hesitate to voice their opinions on YouTube so I can't see them going to a separate site to do it. The reason they troll anyway is to get attention and cause chaos and if you're creating an environment where trolling is encouraged then that defeats their purpose. You describe it as "a site where anyone can come and say negative comments without being judged" which is kind of a double-negative. You have to remember, people who spread hate for no reason on the internet are highly immature and they want to attack other users, not just videos. They're out to hurt people in order to feel better about themselves.

    Side note: what do you have to gain from this site?

    the reason why i created this was cus i saw all the hate on youtube and i wanted to create a niche market for them!

    what i get out of this i guess i would lik the site to grow and maybe make some money from advertising.

    I asked because I didn't see any advertising and was wondering what type you would be doing and why it isn't implemented yet.

    yes, i think is a good idea,

    Somebody come with idea of a 'hate' button, oposite of the facebook 'like' button and i read many positive opinions about this. IMO this is a sign that people need something like this,

    best regards and happy holydays

    Like how? That's my whole point. No ads = no $. Nothing for sale = no $.

    pros: looks nice

    cons: i would recommend, try to make the center background (where the content is making it a different color.

    Your idea sort of made me think of this article: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/28/bu...pagewanted=all

    In a nutshell, what this guy was doing is buying counterfeit glasses and selling them off as the real thing via his website. When customers began to complain and write bad reviews, he would flip them off. When they continued to write bad reviews, this actually upped his Google ranks, therefore exponentially increasing business for him. In fact, if you were to type in something like "Prada sunglasses", Google would rank his site in front of the actual Prada site.

    Now, if you happen to read the whole article, I think what this guy did was horrific. But anyway, the lesson learned here is that negative content is basically more attractive to people, and it tends to exponentially breed more negative content. It's human nature. And at this point, I don't think Google can really tell the difference between what we would consider "negative" or "positive" content.

    That's why I think your idea might actually begin to generate traffic.

    I remember reading about this guy as well and reading that article. Now its been a while, but I'm not sure that all the negative replies, backlinks and the like actually generated more revenue for him, but definately more site traffic and higher search page rankings.

    Surely ppl are not stupid enough to read bad reviews on products and services, read how the site and company owner basically told those customers they're screwed, then still buy from him....lol but I've seen some stupid things...

    Now, this site is a little different I think. People love gossip, whether positive or negative. People love to see ppl get slammed or paraded on the internet in videos and blogs. So I guess this site m ight actually generate quite a bit of traffic.

    A friend of mine showed me a couple of sites once that basically allowed ppl to post pictures or other ppl they may see out on the street or whereever, ppl they called hipster doofus's lol. Seems that those sites are along the same lins as this one.

    It's not that people are necessarily stupid when they do online shopping. Okay, I retract that statement, people are freggin idiots. It's just that they fail to do some basic research. It's only when they get scammed do they start discovering others who were deceived in the same manner by the same individual(s). Then what follows is a neverending tirade of complaints/warnings/bad reviews on the net. As a result, and unbeknownst to them, the perpetrator's rank is thus further improved, so when the next doofus looks for Versace sunglasses, they stumble upon the first site they see, and the cycle continues.

    See, that's the thing....people love gossip whether it's positive or negative, but it seems to me that people are even more attractive to the latter. We are more inclined to voice our opinion on some negative subject...that's precisely what this fellow took advantage of. It's just that he took advantage of this idea in a criminal manner.

    I truly like this idea of bringing all the haters together. In a way, it kind of reminds me of how George Carlin used to talk about fencing off all of our nation's worst criminals, air dropping them weapons and ammunition, and then basically letting nature take over.
