To all my single friends, I suggest this: Rather than spend another night talking to another balding banker, or worse, suffer through a complete dry spell, why not make dates come to you?
A random comment from an unidentified You Tube user, such as the one above, is likely not appropriate in a research paper that coalesces expert opinions on a scholarly topic.
Or maybe you’re intentionally seeking out vile and offensive comments if you are writing about the psychology of Internet trolls.
Whatever your reasons, you have found a You Tube comment that you would like to cite, but you don’t know how.
Rather, they indicate how long ago a comment was posted (e.g., “3 hours ago,” “2 weeks ago,” “10 months ago,” “4 years ago,” etc.).
With such imprecision, there’s no sense in citing a day or a month, as you would do when citing a blog comment, so just cite the publication year.
