How To Stop Abusive Youtube Videos Comments From Getting Approved

Since the day we started our new youtube video channel which features our latest gadgets reviews, we keep on getting abusive or offensive comments on different videos for no reason, as it looks like youtube has become a free-for-all forum to post abusive, vulgar and worthless comments. Initially, there where less of them, so it was OK to put up with but now the number of abusive comments is skyrocketing.

Initially we got some abusive comments on some of the popular videos on our channel, as by default all these abusive comments got approved and appeared on the youtube videos without any moderation, after some search I got to know that there is option under youtube video settings which allows you to stop these abusive comments and makes sure that every comment is held for moderation.
