GODDESS WHY DO SO MANY PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT THE GOOGLE+ INTEGRATION INTO YOUTUBE?
Sure, I understand, a good amount of the PewDiePie demographic are being absolute [Redacted compound swear]. YOU [REDACTED] WERE GIVEN A WARNING MONTHS AHEAD OF TIME. YOU CAN KEEP YOUR YOUTUBE ACCOUNT OR EVEN HAVE IT MANAGED BY YOUR ACTUAL G+ ACCOUNT, SHOULD YOU HAVE BEEN THE 2% OF USERS WHO THOUGHT TO SIGN UP FOR IT BEFOREHAND.
You know you don't have to create emails/accounts with your real information, right? Also, Google emails only require a mobile number if you're from somewhere that's not Antarctica. Eskimos get to keep our anonymity. So yeah, youtube policies are no problem at all, unless you want to use a personal account to manage everything while keeping it private. Then you're screwed. :)
