Google Wants To Be Your Everything
I wanted to comment on a YT video today. Google+ kept popping up a nag box to force me to "agree to Pages terms". Apparently it is now required to have a Google+ account, a Page, and use your real name in order to comment on YT videos. Soon they'll probably not even let you view videos, much less comment.

It's the Farcebook of the wwworld.

And what's to stop them from eventually blocking use of Maps, Searches, or anything else, including your phone, which must have a Google account if it's Android and you ever want to run any apps.

Who needs the NSA when there's Google?

Yep. And they will ruin everything else. They took away the internet. It's only a matter of time.

I closed my YT channel months ago for their censorship of other channels, not that it mattered to anyone but me. But my phone was either going to be Apple or Android, and the former is just too expensive and closed.

Two heads of the same hydra, most likely. They're all melding together. People say "get off Farcebook", but it doesn't matter anymore. To live and breathe is to be monitored. They even have drones and listening devices the size of insects or grains of sand, so if you go off-grid they can still find you.

Not so much troubled as annoyed.

But yes, this is the "Brave New World Order", a meld of dystopian nightmares. And some of us know it will not last as long as TPTB think it will.

they clearly don't want you to communicate or exchange ideas on youtube - both the video comments and youtube mailbox are difficult to access now.

There's DuckDuckGo, StartPage, and several others. Mapquest is okay but my phone of course prefers Google Maps.

Yep. But people who complained about it either got banned or just went with it anyway. So Google really has no reason to listen to anybody. Just like FB they know people will put up with just about anything.

It's supposed to depend on the user settings as to whether anyone can comment, even with a G+ account. Have you tried a different browser or anything?

dUH. google plus is desperate for views... so they are trying to make it so that everything connects to google plus. Even posting fake content from your you tube channel to make it look like you are actively using your google plus. Can you say desperation much?

Sure, 99% of the comments on YouTube were pure crap, but this really does suck. It seems as though I can reply to comments but I can't comment without replying. Any other popular video hosting sites where you can easily comment?

I don't know much about alternatives beyond Vimeo and such. But as somebody said in a comment in an article about all this, it has nothing to do with stopping the crap comments. It's all about forcing everybody to use G+.
