Well, unless the viewer him/herself leaves an opinion; then s/he can view all of the others for that video...
But yes, you can't have a conversation between viewers that way.
And this is a bad thing?
I was never saying it was a bad thing, just contradicting what knowname said about opinions.. I think opinions should be left the way they are, personally. But I do think another form of leaving comments (and getting rid of Quick Comments) would be a good thing.
 or at least a way for the editor to turn off QCs if they want to... or make them so they are not anonymous... >.>
Besides comments like "this is why I go to the tube" are one of the main reasons this discussion has been opened.
The problem with announcement threads = youtube's comment system is that after so much amount of time, everyone wants them locked as to let newer videos on the forum get the spotlight of being "at the top of the forum" - youtube's comments are never locked. I get comments on old videos more often thanks to the tube.
I suppose if we wanted to change this, we could have the threads auto-moved to a subforum something like "most talked about videos" or something and leave those threads unlocked in there, while the main announcement forum remains as it is. I already link to my announcement threads from my video profiles that way people who find the profile can read what was said in the announcement at the time.
I don't necessarily like my comments being strictly for me because I like to read what other people say in conversations about my video. More stories and personal experiences that pertain to the video often come up in this way. I love reading personal experience stories.
Besides most of the "advice" I get anymore isn't really advice. It's vague "I'd do it differently" comments. I like getting most of my advice during the beta process, it's kind of useless after the fact, for the most part (at least imho - or maybe I'm just at that stage in my "amv career").
