So it seems i can't have an account anymore on youtube without having an account with google first.... whats this about? I had a youtube account for few years yet today it says 'can no longer log in without google account' and i have to give my mobile number if i want a google account!!

Why can't they send the code to my email address like most other sites do?

Do i really want them to have my mobile number?

Who else has given there mobile number?

I know there's millions on youtube who must have given there numbers out but is this another way of storing more info about us?

I just edit all y info out and make my account fake I dont use yahoo messenger or google chat or mobile im so if i want to use it I log in but you can even connect yahoo to google which sounds proposterous.

I used my yahoo mail as a google account I don't know how this worked but I didn't have to sign up to Jewgle, I just used my YM!. Also Jewgle bought Jewtube around 2006 so they are now connected.

So use an alternative like Vimeo maybe? There's a reason Google/Youtube has a virtual monopoly.

They did it to try and stop sock accounts supposedly.

Unfortunately they fail, and people are still using view manipulators/account creators.

Especially the JDL they use them on You Tube un-mass spamming their pro Israel comments.
