    People comment on YouTube?

    Why?

    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?

    Solution: ban comments.

    For those with video series - not just a crappy camcorder job, etc, you lose a lot - on-video feedback specific to the video and easily accessed.

    Or you could stop posting asshole youtube comments.

    I presume you post asshole youtube comments, because all youtube comments are this way. ****, I think Youtube should start putting your address next to comments!

    It's definitely not for me. I do not, never will, need or want my ex husband to find me online and harass me like he did in the past. If my name eeks out just once, he will make contact with me, again. He has no reason not to, and it won't be for old-time's sake, or to even see the children that he is the sperm donor of. It's only been to harass me online. Not even in a 'bullying' sense but a 'hey - haha' or 'you shouldn't say that.' sense. He doesn't belong in my life and I reserve the right to keep him out.

    I behave myself, and when I don't, the forum I misbehave on comes down on me (aka: I get the occasional thread-ban here on Debate Politics). This works for me, I don't need to tell everyone WHO I am, some things are not allowed - we have administrators who keep a handle on things pretty well.

    It bothers me that You Tube / Google did this automatically in the past and I had to go into my account and conceal my real name. What this makes me regret is ever giving them my real name to begin with. When I first signed up for Youtube, it wasn't Google, it wasn't connected to my real-name account, and I rarely use it to comment/ etc. I listen to music, put together playlists, and share those with friends online. Nothing dramatic. However, I don't need people from my real life to FIND me.

    That is my right - and if they start insisting I show my real name I will close my account.

    Already, I have all of my accounts set up without my real name. I have a DBA pseudonym I use when absolutely necessary, but never my real name. . . which brings up another thought of mine: how do they know it's a 'real name' - when all you give is a first (could be fake) and last (could be fake) name. It really means nothing if someone thinks about it ahead of time.
    Yeah, I noticed this the other day. I was trying to watch a music video and it kept popping up asking me to link my real name. I'll never do it. And if they make it mandatory, I'll delete my youtube account and make a new one with a fake name.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

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.

    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.
