For some odd reason that defies explanation, I can't comment on any YouTube videos, it just asks me to sign in again though I'm already signed in.

I tried searching on Yahoo, but couldn't find anything coherent that related to the issue that I was having.

They replaced their comment system with Google+. You have to have a g+ account and be signed in to comment.

One of the most bs moves they ever made if you ask me.

Oh and they are hitting all gameplay makers to now with their latest policy change. So expect to see alot of the current game play vids to vanish.

The vids may not vanish, but they are getting slammed with Copyright claims, which will most likely just stop the commentators/lets players/etc from gaining revenue off of their content. There was actually a report that a lot of companies are AGAINST this new policy put in place by YouTube.

Sadly they will. As three strikes and you are gone. So basicly. They mark all mine as copyright claim. You can say bye bye to your channel and vids. Been there done that.

It's funny to see the reaction, we in Germany have the GEMA which blocks YT videos for the same reason (in fact everyone living in Germany has to pay a fee every quarter to GEMA but we're still restricting to enjoy most YT videos). Now the world feels how amazing it can be. Oh and yeah most authors are against the GEMA as well but that might happen if you're under contract with a publisher who doesn't care about anything else than "how can we maximize our (publisher, NOT author's) profit".

I didn't think this was going to effect me all that much, but as it turns out, I may have posted a lot more on YouTube than I realized. I've noticed that there have been many times when I've finished watching a video and then spontaneously moved to upload my current thoughts on it, only to be presented with the notification that I must sign on to do so.

:Sigh:

I know I'm there for the video and not the comments, but I can't help it, it's really putting me off visiting YouTube.

I hear that there's a petition going on somewhere to reverse it, but I don't know if they'll be able to change Google's mind. From what I've seen, Google doesn't really care about their user base, only about how many adverts they can shove down their throats and how much money it'll net them...
