How do you feel about Google forcing YouTube commenters to have a Google+ account?
aiden 16 weeks ago
I’m a little conflicted on this. On one hand, I remember fondly the “Wild West” era of the internet and hate to see more restrictions, on the other hand, the comments on YouTube can be so terrible that I have banned it for my kid - there is just too much racist, sexist, homophobic hate speech in the comments. What do you think, is this a good move by YouTube or is it a bad thing?
