Youtube now asking people to sign in with their full first and last name!!??? WTF
I logged onto my Youtube account this morning and got this notice:

Get a better name on YouTube
Replace your hard-to-read username, and start using the name people know you by.
You can still use your username to sign in, and links to your channel will not change.

Your full name


Then had a box for both first and last name. I had to jump through hoops and decline...I couldn't paste all of the stuff that it showed.

Thanks for your feedback. Learn more about using your full name on YouTube and update at any time.

What's interesting is that my username is actually nothing weird at all, it's a first name with initials...SO....anyone else get this notice recently?

Well I'm not really interested in doing that just yet, because the tradeoff then wouldn't be sharing videos with family members but as of now the name thing isn't mandatory either.

First it is not required, it is just a question that can be declined or acted upon later.

If a video is put up, the person putting up the video can approve comments, let all comments be as they are, or have no comments.

It is not up to Google, or UTube, but according to what the uploader wants. And yes, some of that will depend on copyrights because that is what it is!

Plus fact that with certain videos (or all I do not know) they may dish out some money if enough different people watch it. Since a person can sign up for the monetary policy, I think they are cutting down on the cheating that happened before with the same people hitting the video just to up the count, now it is different people for counts to the video put up.

So, read the darn lines instead of assuming!

It looks like you can't read...where did anyone say it was required? Certainly not me because I said I was able to decline. All I did was attempt to log into my account and, from original post:

Wow.

The fucked up part is the underlying information that they're getting from you should you decide to choose no thanks.

Even if you choose to decide later, that shows that you are paranoid about your personal privacy and we all know what that means to the DHS.

Even the other choices glean information. No matter what you choose.

Stay away from that shit!
