Why does YouTube keep asking me to use my real name?

If I wanted everyone in the world to know my real name, I would have used it instead of a username. Why does YouTube want me to use my real name all of a sudden?

To continue using your YouTube username, just click “I don’t want to use my full name” when you see the prompt.

In the coming months we'll be seeing even more of these type of requests as the governments data and information center, being built in Utah, nears completion. Its the final stage of the patriot acts elimination of anonymity that the "web " allows . Strange how the freedoms we tout so highly in our constitution are being ground into the dirt, all by a government hell bent on protecting us all from some perceived "terrorist" threat! :(
