what is this? March 13, 2012 5:40 PM   Subscribe

does anybody know what on earth this website is for?

I found it by googling for an ask metafilter thread on Google. Every time you reload it, the comments change. There aren't any links either.

That is bertrandom's Mefi comments vs. Youtube comments project! It just loads recent comments from both, as a point of comparison. Previously discussed here and here.

hahah that is beautiful:

"he is somehow GAY + STRAIGHT = GRAIGHT "

"FUCK VEVO!! Dear Vevo, Let me start by sayin get your fat corporate arses off youtube! Ever since these big companies started paying off youtube so they could post their videos we can't post ours. We are flagged for infringement every time we include a song we like in our videos. This is YOUtube, the place where we can post OUR videos. If we wanted to listen to music from you we'd go to your fucking website. To people who want greedy corporates gone, thumbs up and copy this on Vevo vids "

I am concerned that, with people quoting YouTube comments here, these comments are going to get picked up on that site, and it will prove that we are as shallow as YouTube commenters.

Yep, and then the youtube people will go copy a bunch of original stock metafilter comments and paste them in and the transition will be complete.

I think it might only grab from the blue, adamrice.

And... it's back up!

ODiV: I think it might only grab from the blue, adamrice.

And if it doesn't, and includes answers from AskMe, there would be random medical advice, DTMFA, and so forth, which would be really confusing.

As a general rule of thumb, don't read the bottom half of the internet.

ODiV, it's been a day an I'm still waiting!

Ha! I looked at it once and it worked. Refresh, and my company's decency-filter blocked it for "offensive content". Either Metafilter or Youtube just got more sweary. Hmm.
