A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
Not that I care, but have any of you ever considered the possibility that even if YouTube were to put out the user's real names, many will simply choose to give fake names? What is YouTube gonna do? Ask us to e-mail them a piece of ID?
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Solution: ban comments.

Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

I have to disagree. There is no right you have in this world to not be criticized, hear mean things, or avoid insults. The moment you start forcing people to be nice is the same moment your outlaw legitimate criticism because it is not a nice thing to hear you did something wrong or bad. Just by writing a law that language taken to be offensive is criminal uyou end up giving every oversensitive whiny little twat the power to take your speech away. I am aware this is just youtube, but this sort of idea plays to the bigger issue of trolling and online meanness.
At what point do we tell these whiny little brats to suck it up and deal with the world? Someone makes a rude comment on your youtube video and then you are so bothered by that you kill yourself? I have a hard time blaming the troll in that case because killing yourself over someone's online words is psychologically bad. Again, do not get me wrong, if someone is out there showing up on your doorstep, mailing letterbombs to you, or using your persona info to cause problems in your life then I am all for youtube giving them up to authorities and having them charged with real crimes. I also have to wonder how much you give encouragement to suicide to a distraught and irrational person to kill themselves by promising punishment to the people they hate. Some of these whiny little turds are nucking futz. There has been a few times I have had threats leveled at me that the person would kill themselves and the cops are going to throw me in jail. Sure, all but one has never done such a thing, but these people who take online drama so seriously have a distorted view of reality and they are taking these ideas that trolls will be punished for saying boo to you and actually believing their suicide will show all those people who insulted them.
I have to agree with other people also. I do not want my job searching for my real name and coming up with my youtube links to MLP, anime, TYT, or programs like scamschool and getting the wrong idea or firing me because they find it weird or offensive. Think about all the trouble we could get in with our powsts here if they were under our real name and some person of the opposite political alignment decided to show us and get us fired. The damage that could be done to people over what should be free is much worse than the damage done to insecure little screwballs who need to recognize some person saying FU to you online is simply not important. We have known for years that to be a celebrity and have your life open to criticism is to invite negative opinions and abuse. Now we have the internet and all these little turds want to think what they had for lunch, or the goofball little video they posted makes them famous and important, but they do not want any of the negatives that come from getting noticed. No one guarantees everything in your life will be pleasant and good, and some of these people need to realize that.
Give them the ability to delete comments and report abusive posts and ignore the crap if they want to, but giving out people's real names is only going to play into the hands of some of the more warped little whiners when they do seek out revenge for some words online. Most of the rudest trolls online may be mean and assholes, but they do not come off as crazy as some of the oversensitive insecure crazies who cannot take a single negative opinion of them without making it some kind of world ending drama.
This could be the boost Dailymotion needs to become relevant.
