YouTube account holders may be surprised to find the above message, which locks them out of their accounts when they try to sign in until they linked to to a Google account. Don't have a Google account? Sign up for one.
In 2008 Google heavily promoted linking arms with YouTube as a option. In 2009, new YouTube accounts were automatically linked to Google in the creation process. Now, those with older Youtube accounts will longer have an option. As the new lock-out page reads, "You will no longer be able to sign in to Youtube without a Google account." The only other available option to linking accoutns is to sign out of Youtube.
This is bull.
Edit: Also found on said linked page , another boycott!
