Adam Buxton is the master at reading out YouTube comments. I've not seen it done better than here:

The problem is, 99% of comments on YouTube or the Daily Mail online are badly-spelled hate. Everyone already knows this. I do think it's worth a dig as a new part of our culture. But once you've made that point the first week, how do you keep it fresh?
Very funny clip

I agree, I think I'd feel less negative if CB used the the comments he appropriates in order to make some pertinent points about the state of modern discourse and how the new media allows us all to put the world in the back of our personal taxi whilst we transmit every flickering thought and opinion as it beetles through our brains, not just to point at Lolgag678 and enjoin us all to laugh at their silly and ignorant opinions, that's just cheap, lazy and redundant.
