random comments sampling: metafilter vs youtube

as a metafilter subscriber, I found this particularly enlightening and theory validating — metafilterer’s IQ > youtuber’s. metafilter’s commentation is intellectually-substance rich, and each subsquent participant generally brings something new to the table. where as youtube represents the opposite, relying completely on the video to provide substance. the comments are really an after thought, avg. IQ on par with that found on digg which has a similar delimma.

interesting to note: it’s built using the php “framework” symfony and the particularly slick yahoo pipes.
