Google Wants You To Stop Being A Sexist, Racist Asshole on YouTube

We all know that YouTube is the spot on the Internet where all the trolls go to play. It’s like a cyber Klu Klux Klan rally. If you want to feel good about the society we live in, go to the YouTube comments section and that will be impossible. Google is trying to combat that. Their strategy for making the YouTube world a friendlier place is make users shed that protective veil of anonymity.

Google is now pushing people to use their real name when commenting on YouTube. See screen grab below.

So now if you’re a sexist, racist asshole, people can hunt you down and challenge you to say the same thing to their face. I say, kudos Google.
