For any Google folks reading this (especially if you work on Google Plus or YouTube), I'm hoping that someone can fix this situation. Last year, I wanted to start using Google Hangouts on Air on Techdirt.  In order to connect my Techdirt account to YouTube, I was FORCED to close my personal YouTube account, and make our Techdirt account my personal YouTube account. I didn't want to do this.  But I asked around and was told that was the ONLY way I could do Hangouts on Air via Techdirt.  So I did it. Now when I surf Youtube, I do so as "techdirt."

Now, over the last month or so, every time I go to YouTube, it scolds me for not using my personal name, and tries to force me to drop Techdirt, and put my Google Plus identity on my YouTube account.

But, of course, the videos I've uploaded on that account are Techdirt videos, not my personal videos, and I'd like to keep it that way.  Of course, I can't upload personal videos because YouTube/Google forced me to shut down that account.

So, basically, the whole situation sucks.  I'd like to be able to use both accounts, without Google/YouTube fighting over what account it is, or forcing me to close or rename accounts.

Anyone out there who can help sort this out?

today I searched for "How to determine if carrier waves are piggybacking subliminal messages" because about a month ago that notion all of a sudden hit while listening to Spotify.  Your entry blew me away.  Why would we both know this? Please touch base if possible. kirtedward@gmail.com

Of all the new products we're offering over at our Techdirt Insider Shop (http://rtb.techdirt.com/), I think the Seized Tee is my favorite: http://rtb.techdirt.com/products/seized-tee/ (more info: http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20120814/11022720048/this-t-shirt-has-been-seized.shtml)
