    I post comments to YouTube often, after watching videos.
    But, it was just brought to my attention today (via Social Media) that my comments aren't even being seen on said Channels.

    Any idea why that would be?
    - I'm not using bad language or profanity in my comments
    - I've set Google+ to allow all comments
    - I've set YouTube to allow all comments
    - I've read a few online posts about making sure All Comments are on. But, I feel that is more about those people that run Channels

    Lost here.

    ^^^ There is your answer.

    The channel owner determines whether comments can be posted, and if so whether new comments need to be reviewed and approved by the channel owner before they are visible to the public.

    If only it were that simple.

    My 'Google' account is actually an Outlook.com, that I used to create a Google account. It appears any posts I make on YouTube, aren't being seen by anyone, but me.

    However, I've since created a true Google (Gmail, etc.) account, and posted comments to YouTube. Already people are responding. So, clearly there is something wrong with my initial account and commenting on YouTube.

    And here I was thinking that people were simply ignoring me...
