If you upload a video and allow comments (which appear only on the YouTube
page, not in the embedded version), when you (as the uploader) view the
video's page, you have the option of removing a comment and even blocking an
individual user from posting comments. I removed a pseudo-death threat
posted by someone who apparently didn't care for my "Mister Spam Man" video.
