Out of the blue, I was informed via forced UI that I had to migrate my hardly ever used YouTube account data and some other crap I did not care about, such as some Google Analytics accounts, from the pre-Google userid to, get this, not my primary Google account, but to the google-managed own-domain email ID I used to set up the accounts. There was no way to associate the accounts with my primary Google account.
Naturally, I spent an hour figuring out how to just delete the fuckin’ accounts.
It is, oh hell yes, time to jump ship. Google is over. Eric, Sergey, thanks for the ride, but this is my stop. Good luck with that whole hyper millionaires in space thing.
