German guy confused by the meaning of “Party Pooper”.
THIS IS THE GREATEST THING I HAVE SEEN ON THIS WEBSITE EVER.
If you ever feel ignored just remember that Will Smith has a 21-year-old son named Trey Smith.
Oh the irony
it’s almost as though time passed in between these screenshots
Still on board with the OP unironically
The privacy and safety is still there, and it’s been changed, like YouTube, to reflect the fact that the general attitude towards anonymity online has changed drastically over the last few years.
That and that right screenshot has a very clear button that allows you to ignore the change and continue using YouTube the same way you have been.
OP is pretending that YouTube adjusting its policies to reflect the times (and by doing so getting in line with almost every mainstream website that isn’t 4chan) is somehow a complete reversal of stance, which is misleading.
The button only dismisses the popup temporarily, it comes back inevitably until you give in (or accidentally click the wrong button).
imo it’s more Google continuing to push to change the general attitude towards anonymity than them reacting to it. Besides g+ and facebook, neither of which really come off as unbiased re: anonymity of their userbase, I can’t recall anyone being anywhere near that pushy about ~real names~, and I’m not sure facebook comments are a bastion of internet civility either.
Of course Google’s idea of real names is still idiotic even if there was merit to the idea of requiring people to use them.
Even if it comes back, you can click the button again. I’m sure somebody’s already made an extension that automates that or a filter for adblock that hides the box.
Reacting to the change in attitude is implicitly furthering it, I think.
I’d personally rather read thousands of Facebook or G+ threads over one video’s comments on YouTube - they’re not golden examples of useful discussion, but they’re miles an improvement. I think that if someone has a reason they can’t post something anonymously as a response to a video, good - if it’s not a strong enough reason to warrant creating a separate account for it then it’s probably not worth saying.
In the end, beginning to lose the freedom to be a jackass is the only reason most YouTube users are riled up about this anyway.
"Hay do you wanna do this thing that fucks up your privacy and potentially puts you in personal danger?" "err, no" "ok, how about now?" "no" "How about now?" uh.
I won’t read youtube comments but I have zero expectation that requiring real names is going to improve them. There’s plenty of interesting discussion happening on places on the internet where there’s no real-name requirement, and plenty of “being a jackass” posted under someone’s legal name. I just don’t see that this is somehow specifically impacting jackasses.
If anything it’s gonna reinforce the echo-chamber-ness of abuse and bullshit from people who can get away with it under their legal names to the detriment of people who have to be afraid of repercussions for things that I wouldn’t consider being a jackass, and people are gonna have to be afraid of posting videos that incite, i dunno, 4chan or reddit mras or whatever, or just in general having creepy assholes start stalking and harassing them irl because their name is out there.
Also did they really remove the “see answered comment” functionnality for non google+ comments? “So people you all loved it when we introduced that? Well it’s gone now, unless you use your g+ profile :)” fucking assholes
