I hate and I mean I freaking HATE the comments section on Youtube so it doesn't really affect me one bit. I'm sure it must be a pain for you guys though. Sorry to hear that.
i like to read them and reply to them too
cause sometimes i watch how to videos and such then i go to comments sections
now its all screwed up
I don’t have Google+ at the moment and I cannot leave comments on YouTube videos at all. It isn't a big deal to me but it's counterproductive. My comment notifications also don't appear to be going into my inbox anymore since they are apparently being delivered by Google+. =|
I may or may not upgrade to Google+ in the near future. It isn’t something that I'm overly excited about using for any reason...

All this hate at G+! The simple matter is they'd like you to have a G+ account connected to your Yahoo account.
I had G+ before it was integrated into Yahoo. It goes both directions, G+ users wanted Yahoo integration, Google made it happen.
Google forces one to use their Real Name and suffer if you don't. My YouTube channel is pathetic but it's mine, as I originally made it. Just let G+ have you. I now have a Page for my YouTube identity, controlled by me as my other G+ self.
As for the tweaking, that's what Google does. I love it. Ever changing.
Comments are another thing. It was way long ago that comments were truly awesome, the new tweaks are supposedly threaded, but I guess it's a linear threading.
