Washington: YouTube has reportedly acknowledged that there are issues with its `mandatory` Google+ synced comments system and will soon be issuing fixes for the bug.

The new comment system made it a rule for users to have their Google+ account synced with the video-site to be able to post comments, a move which instantly put off many users.

However, the Google-owned video site has said that it is bringing in new features to the system including threaded conversations and formatted comments.

The site said that the new system dealt with many spam issues that had plagued YouTube comments in the past but has also brought in new options for spam abuse, which the company will be fixing with updates.

YouTube further hinted to one often-requested feature, bulk moderation allowing users to moderate numerous comments and the site is also working on improving comment ranking and moderation of old-style comments, the report added.
