Youtube going down the drain for real.

Its only a matter of time now, you cannot comment on any videos unless you update to their piece of *** version and uplink youtube to your google account, that is good for nothing other than "its better because its the new version and we want to see your private information"

Not very often, unless its a Starsector video ::), now you can't comment at all unless you link it to google+.

You don't really need to enter any private information. Just an email address and an alias?

just tested it, no need for g+, just email

still annoying as heck, but for now it's tolerable...

The power of monopoly at work I suppose, unless there can be a competitor to Youtube (and what are the chances of that?) they can essentially do whatever they want, a sad state of affairs T_T

Also, privacy then and now:

I miss the old thing :(
Google used to be good (great?) now it's so useless. Everything. Even Chromium crashes on me a whole lot. I hate them.

I went outside one day, the graphics were amazing, but the gameplay sucked...
