I linked my accounts long ago. I like all my accounts together. It's like a mesh of accounts. Combined with LastPass, I am logged in anywhere and everywhere I go all the time. It's a beautiful thing.

I see no problem with it, considering Google owns Youtube.

Nothing much to say there , but wouldn't it be best on the interest of everyone to leave it as an option?

Either ways it would do no harm , as with all "strings attached" policies , some people would prefer not to give out more information than they need to.As i have reference 2 pages back , what if you would need another service attached on your gmail account for it to work?

On the surface it seems harmless , but just as blizzard's naming policy , it will just pave the road for more such acts to come.

It's pissing me off to no end - I have multiple Gmail accounts - If I logoff one and go to the other - things get all fuggered up - Can't save to favorites - and my gmail signs out of chat.

Aholes.

I wish Youtube would die.

All that info is linked to google anyways.

gmail, buzz, blogger, googlemaps, youtube, picasa,
I use all of those and I'm thrilled that google is smart enough to have all my accounts under 1 unified login account.
which means that a hacker will only need 1 user id and 1 password to hack all of the above
