Starting last week, you’ll see the new YouTube comments powered by Google+ on your channel discussion tab.

Comments you care about move to the top: You’ll see posts at the top of the list from the video’s creator, popular personalities, engaged discussions about the video, and people in your Google+ Circles.

Join the conversation publicly or privately: You can choose to start a conversation so that it is seen by everyone on YouTube and Google+, only people in your Circles or just your bestie. Like Gmail, replies are threaded so you can easily follow conversations.

Better ways to moderate comments: You have new tools to review comments before they’re posted, block certain words or save time by auto-approving comments from certain fans. These can help you spend less time moderating, and more time sharing videos and connecting with your fans.

Yeah it sucks, got tricked into signing up with G+. Oh well, it was inevitable. I just won't use the G+ part of it as much as I can help it.

Check out the Google/YouTube Product Forum for this change, some people are raging.

Nope just a G+ trick.
