    So umm....what the f*ck is the matter with Youtube?

    Post by Juutas on Thu Nov 07, 2013 5:07 pm



    As some of you may have noticed: all hell has broken loose on Youtube today.
    Some of the comments get hidden automatically as spam (these are btw polite normal comments) and the option to "allow" these comments doesn't work.

    I cannot respond to all the comments in my comment section just for some of them.

    Also all the activity that I do on Youtube or that someone else does considering my Youtube is automatically posted on Google+

    It seems that Youtube has a new s*itty feature forced to users every week and when we recover from the latest "innovation" a new one pops up to mess things up.

    I think you can't reply to those that don't have Google + activated on their profiles yet.

    Google + has been torn apart from my account over 3 times now and this time it has won the battle.

    I hate it with a deep passion now. I'm glad I have this account with a 'fake' email, which means it's not the one I use for family, schoolwork, etc.
    But still.

    I want to slap everyone that agreed to this in the face. I don't care about arguements like 'well, this is necessary to keep YT's videos free to watch'. I'm sure they can find other sponsors.

    I just use my real name for my Google Account, you know, Maxwell Tolvo, or Maxwell Dominick. Because Google knows those are clearly my real names. CLEARLY.

    A petition is up for those that want the old system back.

    https://www.change.org/petitions/google-change-the-youtube-comment-section-back-to-its-original-form

    Word of warning.

    Rumor is that Google is suspending people's accounts that are spreading this around, use at own risk.

    Lol that rumour sounds dumb. Long as people aren't openly promoting it on YouTube they can't do anything

    I think tht petition also loses weight when the letter isn't even 10 words log and does not outline the reasons why they should change it back.

    Yeah I'm gonna have to say that if a petition isn't even properly worded and listing it's reasons it won't work. They'll probably just ignore it.

    Repetition of Hatred, hm I have mixed feelings on that Saku may have worked well too.

    This is the same principle as close-to-forced online play from Steam, and XboxOne initially trying to force online mode. You can't even stop the masses from forfeiting their rights, so winning this battle where much less is at stake is daunting indeed.

    For example, I have 1200 uploaded videos to youtube. What am I going to do, switch? I COULD, losing many viewers. But I'm nothing compared to the big names that make a living off it, I'm not even at 5k subs. People who do YT for money are basically stuck; if they switch they'll lose quite a lot. Google and YT have all the bargaining power here, in that you can switch if you want but don't have a good, readily accepted alternative that won't eventually do the exact same thing.

    Hm. I wonder how much of this is related to Google giving/selling user information to the NSA and such? Because they're doing that. Which makes using one's real name all the more hazardous.

    Don't be silly. That stuff was trivially accessed before anyway. They've had access to your IP address for years, and between knowing what you entered into google itself, surfing history, and probably deals with ISPs they could easily find out who you are and all of your tendencies.

    The only advantage an individual has when it comes to NSA monitoring is that he or she is one of a very large number (inconceivably large to just look at information on). As a result, unless you do something worthy of their attention, that information is just going to be stashed somewhere.

    It's still a rather flagrant violation of rights, though so have been more than a few "laws" passed in recent memory.

    The ONLY thing I can think of that was fairly decent with the new Youtube update is the fact that you receive notifications when someone "likes" or "comments" on your post.

    God it's a pain the ***. The only thing I like about it is the notification thing in the top right corner.
    Too bad it just brings me to Google plus though.
