Well, you have the option of blocking them if it’s just a rubbish comment with nothing but childish insults, but for the more severe ones, if you have them, is to report them.

However, if the “bad comments” are nothing more than positive and/or constructive criticism, which you’ll have to identify and make a judgment for yourself, then see what they’re trying to suggest, and just make those changes. Be careful though, some may seem like horrible comments, but generally constructive criticism is easy to pick out.

Again, anything serious like racism or threats of violence and so on definitely need to be reported.

It’s up to you to reply to some or all, that’s your call, but I wouldn’t even waste time doing that unless you feel you absolutely need to. My suggestion would be to just block or report.

One thing I noticed over the last two days is that with the changes in YouTube Studio on how comments are handled, I am seeing way more SPAM comments making it past the filters. I hope they fix this soon.

I used to just ignore them as it's all engagement, but someone pointed out that in the future a company might want to sponsor me, and if they see negative comments that I haven't dealt with, it might put them off - so now I either delete them if they are pointless spam or thank them for their criticism and pledge to do better in the future if their comment is somewhat constructive.

You can delete them, report them, block them, ignore them or reply in a polite and sorry manner.

Yup, that thread was made very recently. The importance of using the “search” feature because the thread you want might already exist.
