How about a way to block the annoying pre-video ads instead.  Comments can be easily ignored, the non-skippable ads....not so much....

Ad Block Plus works for me on Google Chrome.  Give that a try with whatever brower you're using.

Doesn't work (on Firefox at least).  Ad Block will block all the ads down the side of the page, but the pre-video ad that you are forced to sit through CANNOT be blocked that way.  And the "refresh the page trick" has stopped working too.  Suffice to say, I'm spending less and less time on Youtube all the time....

if they wanna make something useful why not make a extension that shuts off them stupid annotations that videos have, i know theres a button that does it but wouldnt it just be easier to have it do it auto for all videos

Why does this even exist?  If you don't want to read the comments, then don't read them.  No need to add another extension to your browser and have it use more resources than it already does.

Sounds like a waste of time. If you don't want to read the comments, then don't, it's that freakin easy. Click a video, watch and don't scroll down to see the trolls.

and @ Hg Dragon, just click the hide annotations button and they go away.

"YouTube Options for Google Chrome" can do this, with better control on what you can and can't see.

So, instead of just not reading the things, someone decided to create a browser extension? Seems like a lot of work for little reward.

Now, if someone would make an extension to stop the damned comment bubbles from popping up on videos, that I could get behind

Dude, just click the 'turn off annotations' button on the bottom right of a youtube video, or change it in your preferences
