What's happening at You Tube?

Found, and I use the term loosely (Radio 2 helped) a singer called Caro Emerald.

Excellent voice and tends to sing retro songs. Thoroughly enjoyed her "A Night Like This - Official video" and will post the list. Song at top.

Then I started to read the comments and was a bit surprised to say the least.

Seeing I've not created an account at You Tube I would have thought that the default setting would be U and would not show such comments. Not swearing as such but still offensive enough I think.

I must be old fashioned.

".... I would have thought that the default setting would be U and would not show such comments. Not swearing as such but still offensive enough I think."

I wish. As good as Youtube are at filtering inappropriate videos, they do nothing (as with a lot of high traffic website) to filter explicit comments. As my children grow up, it doesn't give me sleepless night wondering how to ensure that they don't get influenced by puerile comments, but I do wonder how to protect them while ensuring they have the benefits of what the web can offer.

OTT_B Thanks for your comments. I'm an old man and on his second brew of children. Been on the web a while and YouTube always defaulted to strict census until godoogle took over.

Actually, you are better off WITH a Youtube account. You can filter out the rubbish, create your own playlists and much more..... I rarely use the "Front End" I just login to my account.
