I’m a beatmaker. Do you think it’s okay to delete critical comments that come to YouTube, blogs, etc.?

If you’re receiving critical comments on your YouTube channel or blog as a beatmaker, whether or not to delete those comments can depend on a variety of factors.

Reasons to Delete Comments:

  1. Offensive or Excessively Negative: If the comment is aggressive, insulting, or borderline harassment, it makes sense to remove it.
  2. Irrelevant Spam: Low-quality spam comments or advertisements should generally also be removed.
  3. Misinformation: If a comment is clearly spreading misinformation, it may be better to remove it rather than letting it spread.

Reasons to Keep Comments:

  1. Constructive Criticism: If the comment offers useful feedback about your work, then it could be a valuable resource.
  2. Freedom of Expression: The internet is a place for free exchange of ideas, and not everyone will have the same opinion. It’s important to acknowledge the existence of differing viewpoints.
  3. Communication Opportunity: Responding appropriately to critical comments can show your followers your professionalism.

The best course of action regarding critical comments will depend on their content and context. However, you do have the right to remove or report comments that are offensive or inappropriate. Also, for the sake of your own mental well-being, it’s sometimes necessary to distance yourself from an environment that causes you undue stress.

In conclusion, the action you should take depends on how beneficial or harmful the comment is to you and your community.
