Re: I sign into my well used, very comfortable YouTube account...
Only to find that I *simply must* give my phone number and receive a call from Google if I ever want to be able to use my YouTube account again...



Well guess what YouTube...



I couldn't fucking care less, and furthermore, I will have no need for a YouTube account again at any point in the future.



Go fuck yourselves real deep and hard and think of me.
 Quoting: Mister Obvious


Lol though haven't gotten the YouTube notification, yet. Though are you a regular member or partner? And even if I got the notification and couldn't access my account, not a big deal if I only couldn't comment and can still view videos I guess.

Everyone on YouTube has seen their views sink like a lead balloon...

 Quoting: Mister Obvious


True. Chris Crocker use to get 100k+ views for video.
Now he only gets 30k views if he's lucky.

There will be an alternative 'YouTube' brought into the spotlight soon... or maybe a single social networking site where all these things are combined (social networking, video uploading, pic hosting).

Re: I sign into my well used, very comfortable YouTube account...
Wow. This is different than the normal backup email/cell phone thing in gmail right? I always just click "save" on that without filling anything out and it goes right on through!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 36452782



Indeed, yes this is a different screen. I always cruise by that one too. But this, unfortunately, gives no options but to give your phone number and receive a text, or a call.



You can give them my number if you want.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 37043682


Thanks :)



I refuse to give my number out to any site.
Why all of the sudden are they requiring all this?
 Quoting: ClassicalConspiracy



Google, acquiring all the most popular sites, and forcing them all together into one base... and identifying anyone who wants to use their service(s) badly enough. Just the NWO coming to the internet... we've seen it heading this way for a long time.



Give them a fake number
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9566370



You know what, I even have a 'fake phone' that I bought for just this purpose. However... I absolutely refuse to go through this step with this account, on principle alone. I'd rather never sign into YouTube again...

And let's face it, it's not like I ever signed in very often anymore anyway...

Everyone on YouTube has seen their views sink like a lead balloon...

There will be an alternative 'YouTube' brought into the spotlight soon... or maybe a single social networking site where all these things are combined (social networking, video uploading, pic hosting).


But I have no use for it... this is exactly why I purchased my own website, VPS, and threw FFMPEG on it so I could upload videos to my own fucking site... and not have to worry about bullshit YouTube censorship.


The last YouTube channel I made was a channel for my kitty... I put up a very adorable video immediately. The next morning the channel had been removed for "multiple copyright infringements" which was a total lie... there was absolutely nothing that could have been copyrighted.

Ain't nothin' special about my account.

I'm just a random chick on the interwebz trying to stay anonymous cuz I ain't causin' no harm.

That's what so gestapo about all this phone verification shit...

You give them the phone and receive the call, they know where you are... end of story.

Good for you, I had an account with over 80,000 views (non conspiracy, pet related videos), got rid of it all plus Gmail last March when the T and C's tightened up a bit. Haven't missed it once

Re: I sign into my well used, very comfortable YouTube account...
IMDB.com(Internet movie database) did that awhile back to me. I had to give them my cell phone or a credit card number(no shit). i figured since they are owned by amazon and Amazon has like 3 of my CC #s already I'd just go ahead and give them my CC #. They put a $1 hold that dropped off in 3 days..For me it was better than giving out my cell to 'em.

Weird shit though that a movie forum wanted that kind of verification..

Re: I sign into my well used, very comfortable YouTube account...
they wanna be that way with me...

but i just use my google voice number to receive text verifications...

dont need a phone... you can do it online.

i've set up a dozen or more emails that way with one number through them.

I use different emails for the different things i do... like for example... not a real email...

aculalawnservice@blah.com

and that google voice number has come in handy to verify them all.

Maybe you guys can get on that YouTube replacement before one of our corporate oligarchs find out they need to move their complacent asses in order to innovate and stay in business. It's at this time we can over throw them if we take the initiative to create a product purely for the people as opposed to one designed to squeeze them dry.

I must admit that I've surrendered to Google a while ago when I'd hit a similar page.
There was no way around it, and I refused to give up all the playlists I'd created. chuckle

Re: I sign into my well used, very comfortable YouTube account...
It's an issue of privacy.
Do we have the right to privacy in our private affairs..?
Apparently not..

Use a phone, computer, etc.. take a walk in a public place..
We are traced, photographed and tracked.
Privacy is long gone.

I’ve seen this all over the net now, collecting then selling your info once they have confirmed your ID is a lot more profitable then selling random information.

It is making a lot of places on the net slowly turn in to ghost towns in the last few weeks.
