Call me crazy. But why the heck can't I open a YouTube account with something other than my real name??? I just want to choose a regular user name like its been for eons and eons, but it wants me to open a new Google account using only my real name. No nicknames or aliases. I do NOT want to **** somebody off or have a disagreement, and they know my real name and location.
I even tried opening a new Google account with my DOG's name just for this purpose, and Google responds "This appears to be an invalid name. If you would like to appeal using official documentation such as a driver's license, please contact..."
Am I missing something, or did Google just turn YouTube stupid? What do you do if you are a business or organization or something?
