Why are the "rating" and "comments" disabled for some of the videos on YouTube? savvy428 10/6/10 9:54 PM
I viewed several videos and a few of them had the ratings and comments "disabled" and I don't know why?  I picked several videos at random and found this to exist on many occasions which is a bit frustrating.  One would like to have the ability to respond to the content of a video through a succinct critique or by correcting misinformation presented as truth.

It's up to the uploader as to whether or not they want their video rated or commented on. Try posting on their channel page or through a PM.

I'm an uploader and I noticed that comment boxes are disabled only when I put video responses on them.  When I removed the video responses, the comment boxes are back.
 
Please fix this problem.  This has been going for few days now.  thank you..

@pinas -- you're right that there's a recent bug causing the problems you describe.  Supposedly a fix is in the works, or at least staff have taken note of the problem.

The OP's original issue, though, is another matter, and something that I'd expect will remain under individual control, not counting glitches like the current one.
