    I think this needs to be expanded on for YouTube Commenter Subculture.

    There's multiple guys that could be included in this such as StickMaster500 and goddam anyone from NISLT's comment section.

    Someone should analyze his comments under niche, unpopular videos just as they appear. In that case only small minority would be "meme aware" t𝖺rds, thus confirming bot hypothesis.

      I can confirm he says on point comments on niche jojoke videos, some only with views in the 10,000s so nothing suspicious other than his prevalence.

      I know he follows TheVolgun, whose entire channel is SCP readings. Sometimes he shoehorns JoJokes but usually comments relatively on point, even if he started only recently.
      Shame, there was good joke potential with SCP-1715; Justin could well be the object himself.

    For him to have this impact on people is impressive in a sad kind of way. He reminds me of DiaryofaFitMommy. People were complaining about her many comments too.

    The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

        Posting lazy one-liners in rapid succession can fall under spamming. After all, plenty of innocent non-spammers get shadow banned all the time at complete random.
