    Have something to say about the OP? Or are you, too, going to comment on my terminology therein?

    Real names or no...

    This is one of those issues where it's very difficult to take a side. On one hand, obviously this involves a huge privacy concern. On the other hand, "trolls" are arguably worse than ever before. Trolling is no longer in art form, it's just turned into people being mean and hateful. Mean and hateful online people have caused many problems, including violence and suicide.

    If I were YouTube/Google, I'd probably do this too. Not necessarily because I'd want to know everyone's name (though I'm sure Google does), but simply for purposes of CYA. I would do it for legal reasons, even if I did not like it at all.

    Anonymous speech is constitutionally protected, and for good reason. Of course, Youtube is not a state actor, and it can do as it likes in this regard, provided it does not violate its user agreements.

    I really wish there was a way to convince people on the internet to voluntarily stop behaving like complete a**holes, though. It's honestly pathetic.

    I wonder what kind of insulting way I can reference what women do biologically speaking in the creation of a child? I will need to think of that, but there is little doubt that calling a man a "sperm donor" and not a father is insulting.

"The teenage boy who was their biological father but signed away his parental rights?" LOL - 'sperm donor' gets the point across with minimal effort, don't you think? To be given the honor "father" you have to BE a father. He left when our son was 6 days old. Father? No. . . and that's beside the point.
    He is their father. It's just that simple.
