Re: Google Wants To Be Your Everything
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+.

Yeah I didn't mean they updated the comment section because of crap comments; I ment that even though 99% of the comments were crap, I'll still miss freely commenting and reading some of that crap left by pure idiots (I mean, the brain farts of some people just made my day) :(

Has anyone figured out how to return the normal youtube comments to the videos?

Right, and agree. But somewhere I read that Google claims this is to keep the comments free of trolls, and of course nobody believes that. I agree it's better to put up with the trolls than have Big Brother deciding what we're allowed to see.

There are times I can't even check my email, due to them putting a page up wanting personal info. I just click out, and don't check it that day.

YouTube will just be full of fake g+ accounts. You can add all sort of countermeasures to keep trolls away, but you won't be successful. I thin Google just wants us to use g+ because it was dead on arrival and no-one would use it otherwise.

Now when you post a comment, it will show up as your Google account, and not the name of your channel. NO THANKS.

I noticed to get a Gmail account you need to put in a phone number! My job requires use of Google docs, pretty cool if you haven't used it, but Google + seems like giving DNA.

And if you have an Android phone and want any apps on it, you have to have a gmail address. So right there Google has your phone associated with your gmail. Which is why I have a gmail account I use for nothing but the phone.

Re: Google Wants To Be Your Everything
More and more threads about this...

In my opinion, the best strategy for dealing with the global police state is to hide in plain sight. Use the services but use them wisely. E.G., I use my gmail only in connection with my phone; no other email goes through there. I'm on FB but only give partially true info. To stay out completely makes you stand out, and there is no escaping the spying, even if you go completely off-grid.
