Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME FYOUstopusingmyrealnameyoutube 1/24/13 4:35 PM
This is exactly what I came here to post.

The FIRST line of the privacy info page says:
"Never post things like your name, phone number or where you live."

And yet Youtube keeps trying to switch my username to my real name and use deceptive options to do it! Youtube, fix this NOW, what a disgusting thing you're trying to do to your users.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME ridiculouschin 2/5/13 5:58 AM
Its getting real old, real fast. DO NOT USE MY REAL NAME, AND NEVERFUCKINGMIND WHY.
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME wazon 2/5/13 6:20 AM
I will never use my real name here. Why?

This is the INTERNET, NOT the real life. And I will always separate them, so any attempt to get my real name will fail.
If YT will FORCE me to use my real name, I'll just input fake name like Martin Fartin, and the more people will do the same, the more useless your "DB of the world" will become

Google learn to fucking take a hint and quit asking three times per week if I want to post my real name around the internet. For fuck's sake, TAKE A FUCKING HINT.
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME Carrigon 2/9/13 10:27 PM
Me, too.  I'm usually only in this forum every time they ask me to change my name, as it ANGERS me to no end.  I don't want to change my name on Youtube, EVER.  Stop bullying me, stop trying to trick me into accidentally clicking it.  LEAVE ME BE about it.  You are NOT Monsanto of the internet.  There are still many, many choices for video sites out there.  If you keep this up, you're just going to drive many of us away.  I will NOT comply.  And guess what, I'm not paying anyone on Youtube to watch a video or subscribe to a channel.  You know where you can shove the pay service.  Not doing it.  Trust me, you are not the only game in town.  
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME Xoct 2/12/13 11:06 AM
My brothers and sisters of the internets! I feel your pain and have also made a complaint on their useless productforum.

I say we ought to make a phone call and talk to their representatives directly.

WARNING: They will try to say "Oh we don't know anything, you can go to our product forum if you would like" DO NOT LET THEM DO THAT! Force them to get you someone to actually speak with. They want to force real Usernames on US? Well then we can force THEM to give us a representative that we CAN talk to about this shit.

GENTLEMEN AND LADIES ALIKE, ARE YOU WITH ME?!!

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME Blogbat 2/16/13 12:07 AM
Better yet, start calling people at Google and demand they tell you over the phone what their full name is. Wonder what they'll do. Or start showing up at the homes of Google employees and taking pictures of their cookouts. Wonder how that would make them feel?

Turnabout is fair play.

Please take your filthy, foul mouth back home to your mommy.  We do not want it here.  That's the kind of blow that gets you 1) Ignored 2) booted out.

Can you at least tell us why Youtube won't stop using our real names? People are really angry at this.
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME andythebeagle 2/26/13 8:58 PM
I see and understand that people are angry.  The answer has been given more than once.  Problem I have is immature jerks coming here to rant.  None of us work for either Google or Youtube.  We are users, just like you, and we are here to help if we can.  I do not appreciate being abused by some jerk that thinks it is cool to act like that.

Problem is, YT and Google will never look here.  They refuse to discuss any thing.  They make policies that piss me off too.  Difference??  I just wait.  Things seem to clear up, given time.
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME Arkasai 2/27/13 3:42 AM
I see where they're coming from trying to humanize the internet with real names. It's a noble pursuit that would help the internet greatly if there was any real incentive to do so for the average person. They aren't getting themselves any closer by nagging their users incessantly and as a result I deleted my Google+ profile and only sign in to youtube when I want to comment, the site functions fine without me logged in.
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME loyalmoonie 2/27/13 6:17 PM
I'm with people like you 24/7.
I also support a legal privacy complaint against Google if necessary if they do force it.
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME fwupow 2/28/13 12:59 PM
Notice that YouTube has no reply. They're out to please themselves. It doesn't matter if you make your choice, they ask you again a week later and fully intend to pester people until they cave. Like typical fartholes, they give you a multiple choice selection of reasons why you don't want to use your real name and none of them match the actual reason. The corporations are no doubt incentivising this so they can take revenge on anonymous people who produce honest and fair but negative reviews of them or their products. They think they've got people so hard, that they can abuse them and they've got another thing coming.
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME theweedranter 2/28/13 8:17 PM
I like how I'm able to use my real name and all but YouTube needs to stop pushing Google Plus on people. Yeah I like using my real name and all but I don't use Google Plus i'm not sure what it is or what it does i just know it's there for some reason. Even at first I was a bit weary about using my real name. That meant all the stupid shit I said could come back to haunt me in real life, but truth is no one really gives a shit enough about me to go google my name and if they did they'd probably just look me up on Facebook. See I got my point across without having to state it directly.
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME mrnightblade 3/1/13 1:53 AM
every time i try and post a comment, i'm asked if i want to use my real name, it's really frustrating, I either hit the refresh button or the " ask me later button " and then i try and post a comment, but the same thing happens time and time again, i can not post comments on youtube now because of this :/
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME HateGoogleandYouTubesometimes 3/16/13 4:18 PM
I agree.  I am so FED UP with being asked to use my real name.  I DO NOT WANT TO CONNECT ACCOUNTS AND I DO NOT NEED PEOPLE KNOWING WHO I AM.  It's not necessary and I'm sick of it.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME Dodge34 5/3/13 10:35 PM
I'm so sick of it, I want to *)&(?*?*?* stay anonymous on youtube, don't want anyone to know my real name, that's the only reason I love Internet, we can stay anonymous...

I changed my email, created a new youtube account without my real name on it and despite this, they got my real name I don't know where they would have gathered the information about this at all.

And for those that says the damn request is only once, I've seen it more than 10 frickin times, I almost got caught of guard even because I was in a hurry to watch a live stream. The worst is they won't ever read anything on this board and they don't care about complaints, they just want people to use their real names and they will never ever change that decision, its the worst of the nightmare, one day they will ask for a valid passport or driver license scanned image to be able to use youtube.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME truthseeker9eleven 5/4/13 4:20 AM
Google ask but never accept your answer. I know how dangerous it is to have personal data online. It is NOT SAFE to volunteer this information to Google. Google share your personal data with various police agencies and in many cases with agents of the state of Israel

if people WANT to use their real name then they can but they should not be forced. I have also been asked on many occasions to use my name and KEEP saying NO, but they wont listen . They also want me to UPGRADE to the diabolical new design that is even worse than the last crappy redesign and however many times you say NO they keep badgering you. eventually of course even if you say No they will force you into the new design

why cant this horrible company LISTEN just for once . i wish YouTube was an independent company

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME truthseeker9eleven 5/4/13 4:22 AM
they never stop asking

i suspect that this question is more often asked if you have independent political views . Its a trick to get you to reveal data to a 'trusted' source

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME mshermette 5/19/13 8:17 AM
OMG YES! I'm going threw the same thing. I refuse time and time again. Now I can't post on u tube unless I change. I think this is more google control than u tube. They want to suck every bit of info they can from you. And what better way to have a real name attached to everything you post. This will probably end my love affair with you tube, and close my account.
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME mshermette 5/19/13 8:22 AM
I get asked for my real name every time I 'try' to post a comment, for about a week now. Apparently, I won't be able to comment again until I give them my real name. And that's not going to happen.

Youtube just asked me yet again today. Good to know they don't care that we really hate when they do this.

I came here to post about a new auto-play phenomenon that's been going on with me, but now I'm not sure if there's even a point. Clearly no one is listening. Though i don't know why I'd expect them to listen, since I already said NO to this 4 times in the past.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME Groovey Soldier 7/30/13 9:15 AM
Worst part, is that google actually tells you that your name doesn't sound like a name, thats where I would like to also draw the line. If my name was Spactikl (It ain't) and google says that ain't a real name, wouldn't you get hurt? "Sorry, but your name sounds like my diarrhea on a bad day". Fuck off google, the internet is for places with names like CoPUploadZ1337 and Pooptronic. Not. George Hafford. Who the fuck will like to have people know what you do on the ANONYMOUS internet?
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME fcjp42 9/10/13 8:33 PM

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME 1mperator 9/17/13 9:49 AM
Yep totally agree. Especially amusing that Google is trying to leverage a product where it has a relative monopoly (YouTube) to try and establish a similar monopoly in another area (Google+). Sound familiar to what Microsoft did with Windows and IE?

When Microsoft started doing this, I replaced many of their products with Google... if Google continues down this direction I look forward to replacing them with a future competitor.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME i don't want to use my real name 9/18/13 11:17 PM

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME Goatmon 9/19/13 8:07 PM
Seriously!  I have had my YouTube account since 2005, and I am rather attached to the name.  I get asked to change it, one way or another, on a near-daily basis now, sometimes multiple times a day, and I'm fucking tired of this.

I AM NOT CHANGING MY GOD DAMNED NAME, GOOGLE.  CUT IT THE FUCK OUT.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME Michael Triggs 9/20/13 8:18 PM
I agree completely - this is ridiculous. I have been asked at least 8 times now to change my Youtube username.

When will they finally accept NO to mean NO??!?!?!

I don't mean NO as in 'maybe - I might change my indecisive mind later'.

I mean NO - as in NEVER, NOT HAPPENING, ABSOLUTELY NOT --- No!

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME oaw077 9/20/13 8:51 PM

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME MrFixer1967 10/5/13 10:12 PM
If YouTube does not stop this I am going to just set up a fake email using a name pulled at random from the net or a phone book. I will set it up like I am a thousands mile from where I really am and delete my YouTube account and create a new one using the new fake email account. I really do not want to have to do that but if YouTube does not leave me alone I will do just that. I am like everyone else that has posted here. I am sick of this crap. I know YT and Google do not look here but I am going to look for some way to contact them. Wish me luck.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME Jpkurihara 10/14/13 11:55 AM
I completely agree. I have been asked to change my name for the 9th time now. Google I do NOT wish to use my real name on Youtube, because of a little thing called PRIVACY and another one called SAFETY.
What drugs were you on when you came up with the idea to pester people to make them use their real names online!? Do you want us to get blackmailed or something?
Look at the dictionary:
No - (a negative used to express dissent, denial, or refusal, as in response to a question or request)
"No" doesn't mean "maybe later". It means NO. NO NO NO.
If I said NO to your idea for the 9th time, don't you think it's time to cut the fuck out? I am NOT using my real name, and asking more is just increasing my urge to delete my Google accounts.
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME BloodBrigade 10/14/13 10:28 PM
Google keeps pestering me about them bringing google+ identities to YouTube and i'm wondering when they're just gonna come along and force it down our throats.

I like that Google+ and Youtube are separate.  The level to which they are trying to push the connectivity is ridiculous.  They need to get over the fact that Google+ is a failed experiment.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME IndieKid 10/15/13 7:14 AM

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME stopaskingformynameyt 10/18/13 6:33 AM
As of today, I can no longer even log in to my youtube account to edit my own videos without allowing youtube to use my real name.  I'm going to try to delete my google+ account and see if that helps.  I'm about ready to make the switch to a different email I guess.  This is just ridiculous!

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME MrFixer1967 11/5/13 4:09 PM
Same here. There is a easy way. Once you get to your YouTube Inbox create a short cut to the page or Bookmark the page (FireBox). That way you can go straight to it. Works for me. I could not find any other way to get there. I had to open an old email from Youtube to be able to get to my Inbox. That is way I created a shortcut.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME . ... 11/7/13 9:35 PM
Yup, I just deleted my YouTube account too:  2006-2013 R.I.P.


But now I'm worried that sooner or later gmail is going to be a problem. If Google is attempting to gather as much private data on us as they can, all in one "convenient" place, they may well start fucking around with gmail just as they did with YouTube. I stopped using Yahoo! Mail years ago, when they turned over private data to the Chinese government so that they could "deal with" a dissident. I should probably start looking around for alternatives to gmail should Google choose to fuck it up too.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME lukasdesign 11/8/13 2:36 AM

Google sucks in terms of privacy policies

their respect for my privacy is 0.  I made an account with fantasy name yet they ask me all the time to adapt my channel name. FFS my channel has a name that I want keep stop harassing me.

Now when I login into my email I have to login in not once but 3 times to get to email inbox. I guess they are upset with me for YouTube and Google+ being disconnected. I use Google Voice but if this crap keeps up I am going to get something like Magic Jack or Vonage and dump Gmail. I will a email account somewhere else. I have a lot of old emails I need to save first. I may just download a VR printer to save them.

You are 100% right. YT and Google will never look here. If they even knew this was here it would be made to disappear. The people coming here and screaming at YT and Google are just shouting into the wind. I guess they think because it is a Google page that means Google can hear them. Well I have news for you. Both YT and Google are deaf to any problems with any of their work. In fact I do not know of any way to really contact either of them.

Hah. You aren't paying to use Youtube, so you are not the customer. You're the product. Youtube's customers are the people that pay to advertise on Youtube and people that mine your data for information. Google's product is your data and your eyeballs. Everything Google does is to try to convince their actual customers to that their product is worth more money. I'm guessing the number of cat videos you watch isn't valuable information for anyone, so they'd ideally like to put everything you do on the internet to one database, one which they hope will be very valuable to certain people. That's the future. Consolidation of data on people. Get ready to start apologizing to your grandchildren for allowing the stalker economy to take root. Hah, what am I saying. They're not going to care because it's the only thing they'll ever know.

Have you heard of the word stalker, killer, rapist?  Ah, yeah they exist and guess what ? By you asking me to give you my real name you are expositing my private life to all of them.  Why don't you just ask me to post my address and give you my house key just to make it easier on all of us.  

Privacy?  Does that sound familiar or did that word get lost  along profit and revenue?

 Think?  Does that sound familiar?  My name is PattysKiss and I post book reviews do you think that i want everyone who has ever visited my site to have my whole name so they can look me up?  What do you think the author of Fifty Shades will do to me when she finds out that I hated her book??? But really think!

You forced google plus on me stop trying to force me to also give you my name so a stalker can use google maps to find me..
***********************************************
After reviewing your appeal, we have determined that your name does not comply with the Google+ Names Policy.

We want users to be able to find each other using the name they already use with their friends, family, and coworkers.
**************************************************
Really?  How about my enemies and evil people?  Do you want to make it easy for them to find too?

Thank you for making me feel safe..

PattysKiss

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME Chameleonred5 . 11/15/13 11:14 AM
People rant on the internet. It's what they do.

So what if none of us work for Google or Youtube? Youtube is user-created. Without us, it wouldn't exist.

You are not being abused unless you assume that every insult belongs to you. And if that's the case, I feel sorry for you. I didn't ignore or boot out the person who happened to write a word that somehow burns pentagrams into your skin. I say you shouldn't let it burn pentagrams into your skin.

Things haven't cleared up in nine months. Your strategy seems to be faulty.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME Frankson 11/15/13 12:16 PM
This has to fucking stop. I got tricked into using my real name and now I'm fucked. People at school searched my name on Youtube, found my videos, and made fun of me. This is bullshit
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME wtf!!!!!!! 11/15/13 12:56 PM
First I accidentally say 'yes' to the one of the what feels like hundreds of attempts to change to my real name, now there is no way to revert back. Ironically, my real name was already used in this forum. so I have  to find an anonymous name that hasn't been used yet. This is all pointless and leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME MrFixer1967 11/16/13 9:25 PM
I have an idea. Everyone that does not want to use their real name just stop using YouTube. Stop posting videos and comments on YouTube until such time as they stop this crazy crap. There are other place to post videos on line if you must do so. A YouTube boycott if you will. I have stop even going to YouTube at all. I block it on this computer if I was the only one using it.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME fillcakes 11/17/13 5:02 AM
I have a user name christvbible. Google now prevent me from making comments on YouTube because I refuse to change my user name
The problem is this. Google is Part of the Establishment.
The Hierarchy of Elites that comprise The Establishment (in any country - going back centuries) is run by a fraternity of like-minded power freaks who collectively HATE HATE HATE democracy because DEMOCRACY threatens their stranglehold on absolute power and absolute power is achieved by military means.
Google is Part of the Military Establishment that historically and ideologically is NOT PEOPLE FRIENDLY. It is a tool of oligarchs and kings.
Google has all the appearance of being a public tool but don't be deceived. It is run by the Elite for the Elite.

The only way to stop it apparently is to conform to their desire to migrate to G+.. If you don't, they'll keep on sending you the message and disable your 'privilege' to comment on YouTube posts.

It's like tying a noose around your neck and saying "Conform or die.." It's that simple!

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME klarion 11/18/13 8:29 PM
There is no way in hell will I use Youtube with my real name - it's like asking for punishment. Why would I want a bunch of little trolls know exactly WHO I am and know what kind of videos I watch - it's a back door promotion of ridicule and social control.
It will make it nearly impossible for people who do not subscribe to your corporate way of thought. This is the worst in social control and it's a form of EXTORTION too (because google won't allow us to use the site unless...).
It's also a violation of my God given rights and if this is not fixed soon, I'm DONE with Google. And if you (google) doubt it, go check my account and see if I'm logging in as often.... oh and I've downloaded Thunderbird and got another email account too.
As soon as a non google OS for cell phones comes out - YOU ARE HISTORY.

Thanks a lot for forcing your crap on people.
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME klarion 11/18/13 8:31 PM
Amen to that. I already got a private email account and working on more.... will post update here: 1st draft.

    I think that by now it's becoming apparent to most people that privacy isn't something to be taken for granted and that it's something that is fundamental to living freely without worry of unnecessary intrusion or scrutiny by corporations, governments or criminals and hackers, or even so called well wishers, whose only concern may be to denigrate and judge. Personally, I take it as an axiom that when our actions and thoughts are being watched and scrutinized without discretion, we are no longer free to make independent choices and take independent action. Ubiquitous surveillance (doesn't matter by whom) is antithetical to freedom, which we all value as a fundamental leitmotif of our lives.

     

    And it's a fundamental fallacy to assume that if a person wants to have privacy, they have something to hide. We all wear clothes… by that kind of logic, we might as well strip and go naked (or do you have something to hide?). In other words, we all must have a CHOICE to keep things private, regardless of what others may think about our motives. That's just another part of being free - having the freedom of choice.

     

    And it couldn't be less true that we "can't do anything about that"… Yes, we can! Right? ;)

    So, if you value your privacy, this list might be just the thing for you. Here I will try to make a detailed description of how you can start your emancipation process from online corporate services and how you can regain a measure of privacy in your online life and correspondence, whether personal or for business.

     

  1. One of the major obstacles of getting ones self rid of prying eyes is the fact that most modern phones won't function without an account from Google, Microsoft or Apple and their email services have next to nothing protecting your correspondence from the companies themselves, corporate advertisers or prying governments and so called "security" services.
    1. Get a basic phone that doesn't have "smart" capabilities…  and use tablets for apps and games.
    2. Consider a phone that can function without an account from one of the above. Ubuntu for Smart phones is an operating system that is coming out very soon, which will allow  most modern smart phones to work outside the tech giants' grip. You will still be able to download and use your favorite apps, but with enhanced privacy.

     

  2. Get a more secure private email account.  If you pay for a domain name, the domain name host provides a more private email account, but it's still not as good as a company dedicated to user privacy.
  3.  

     

  4. Use an email client such as Thunderbird  that downloads and stores all emails on your personal computer. You will also have the option of deleting those emails from the online server. By doing this, you may never have to log into Google, yahoo, hotmail, or apple, but your emails will still be searched as they move through their servers.
  5. Make sure to disable tracking and location services on your smart phone and picture taking apps as well as apps that you use to share those pictures online, since not doing so will embed the location of where you took the picture in the image and allow hackers to obtain your home address or track you and your family.
  6. Consider leaving social websites that do not have stringent privacy policies that protect your personal information. An alternative way to get around lack of privacy is to withhold private information from the registration process or creating alternative accounts and making sure your information does not get abused for profit.
  7. Use a secure search service like "Start Page" for your internet searching needs. Start Page does not track your IP address and still uses Google's search engine.
  8. Use a secure web browser like Firefox, which is dedicated to protecting its users' online privacy. It has many options, which enhance privacy and security.
  9. Do not trust initial pitches by web companies as they have a tried and tested way of getting your business first and unilaterally switching the terms of service without user input later. It is better to pay a small fee, than have all of your data used and reused for their profit and your detriment.
  10. Most popular web services that are free to use, including social media sites, have an explicit claim of copy right ownership on the information that you upload onto their platform. If you are a creative person who generates content or a person who is concerned about reproduction rights of your pictures and media, consider moving to a different service that explicitly states that the USER controls copy and reproduction rights. For sound files there is Soundcloud and for social media, there is Diaspora… those are just 2 out of several available options.
  11. For those who are even more deeply concerned about protecting their identity and location online, there is Tor, a kind of relay service for connecting to the internet that obscures the location of your computer and the traffic, which it generates.
  12.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME MrFixer1967 11/23/13 9:46 PM
OK. now I have a new complaint to add. I went to Youtube to check on something and the "Guide" on the left side of the screen turns on everytime you do anything. You close it and it keeps reopening. If they keep this crap up before long Youtube is going to be some messed up it is not even going to be usable at all. Is some one trying to destroy Youtube from the inside out? Every time I go there it gets worse and worse. Some one needs to build another site that people can transfer their videos from Youtube to and let Youtube die. I see just that happening if this keeps up.
If anyone does transfer any videos to another site do not forget to deleted the copy on Youtube or at least mark it PRIVATE as to make it unviewable.

If does not stop i will move to a different e-mail provider this is disrespectful.
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME dopici svama 12/25/13 4:03 AM
It's very easy, create another Google account (as I did) with BS name on it and use incognito window to log it in. This way you can be in Chrome logged into your real account and fake one simultaneously.

Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME Oxford_Pictionary 1/27/14 6:00 PM
I hate this also. More and more I find myself going to Bing video search to try and deliberately seek out videos not on YouTube. I've already said I don't want to use my real name, so why in God's name must I log in now every single time I want to comment, and have to answer this idiotic question.
I had an alias account for making most of my comments anyway. I am currently out of the country and had to log in to it, but it said I was in an unfamiliar location and thus needed to provide a phone number to get a confirmation code to log in. I don't have a phone here where I am. But you know what I do have? The password to my damn email. But nope, apparently that's not good enough. The only other option is to reset the password by answering ridiculous questions like the exact date that I last logged into my account. I absolutely hate this and I can't believe this is being allowed to happen.
Re: STOP ASKING ME TO USE MY REAL NAME MrFixer1967 1/28/14 3:45 PM
YouTube will not stop this mess until it starts to cut into their profits. But they are so dumb it could take them a while to catch on to what is cutting into their profits. I am thinking that at first they will do something that will in fact make matters even worse in an attempt to stop the lost. This will cause their profits to fall even more. The big question is will they figure out where they messed but and fix it before they fail altogether? Could we be looking at the beginning of the end for YouTube?

Until you get an impersonation claim. Then good look demonstrating that you are indeed known as Sue Rung or Jim Smith on real life or a significant community other than YouTube or Google+.

Change it to something like YouTubeIsTryingToStealMyInfo to expose their policies. Feel free to adjust your cover photo and profile picture appropriately. My current profile pic has a Google Chrome logo with "KEEP CALM while WE STEAL YOUR DATA" ;) And you can find some lovely images to use for a cover with a simple search of youtube/google/evil/net neutrality/etc. Happy profile redecorating!
