I totally disagree. Not everyone views their video as something which should be judged either way or they other. I certaibnly don't. I make music and make what I feel is an interesting video to go along with it. Love, hate it. I DON"T WANNA KNOW. Why? What I do is internally informed. That simple. Most the things people love by me I really can't stand. And, no, I'm not the kind of person who tends to do things just to be popular. I feel it's wrong for YouTube to promote popularity as an ends. Putting values on things is STATIC anyway. People change, opinions change, moods change, contexts change. When people are preoccupied with rating and judging they are just reaffirming the boxes that society has been trying to put us in all along. It would be so much better if all comments and ratings were gone. Maybe we'd start talking to our closest friends again, and fighting as we always had. As opposed to bickering with FACELESS strangers.
