YouTubers who post offensive comments without any real reason will be asked “politely” to identify themselves using their Google+ account name when leaving comments. It’s all in an effort to clean up the video site with comments from people that just like to leave mean and crude comments. It’s entirely opt-in which says to me that it ain’t going to work. But you can’t blame YouTube for trying. I commend them for that. Unfortunately, in this litigious society that we live in, we have to find ways to stop matters before they come to matters. Google is also wanting to update and consolidate their privacy policies as evident in their recent change to their ToS.
Do you think it will really matter? Do you think that Google is going in the right direction? Do you feel that this will ever change people from leaving bad comments? Or is this just good PR?
I tell you what, you can say whatever you want about this post and I’ll let it stay on my website. No. Really. :^)
Rock forth, Mitch
