I'm gutted I came a little late to the party but I have something to add...
So there I was on youtube a few days ago and I went to leave a comment. As soon as I had clicked on the comment box I had a little message pop up, I
didn't think to take a screen grab but I'm sure this may well be known here at ATS...
The message was asking me to use my FULL name, instead of my "unreadable" username. There were 2 boxes one for my first name and one for my last
name... Or you could select that you didn't want to do it... Obviously I clicked on that and then I got another pop up... WHY don't you want to use
your full name?
There were some options beneath, about 6 I think... It was things like "I am well known by my username" etc... There was no option to say it is non of
I could of just lied I guess but I didn't really want to, so I clicked at the bottom which said something like "i'll tell you later"... I have since
had it again too!
When it first happened I knew EXACTLY what these BEEEEP BEEP BEEEPS were playing at! I knew it was the softly softly approach, not that it was even
that soft though!
Okay so now I have a theory... I have never heard of someone prosecuted or arrested for a youtube video or comment... Has anyone else? And there are
some really bad things said on youtube, I have seen racism, threats of violence and even threats to kill the president etc... Yet nothing? Now some
guy on twitter tells a footballer that he let his dead dad down and he's carted away?
I think they are going after facebook and twitter because people tend to use their real names, especially facebook. Along with the names are your
photos and friends list etc... Basically there isn't much scope to say it isn't you... Then I read this from your op...
create a global regime of monitoring internet communications - including the demand that those who send and receive information identify
It all clicked into place!!! I mean EVERYONE on the internet is either sending or receiving information!
Absolutely shocking stuff...
Thanks for the heads up, I have told everyone I know, hopefully this goes viral! And if I get the message again I will defo screen grab, just incase
people haven't seen the message yet...
