my gmail is linked to my youtube account and i do not see any such panel, only one for youtube's message system.

the article is inflammatory and empty anyway; it basically says "if you let someone use your computer while you're logged into services, they can access them too! whomg"

everyone trying to cash in on the current facebook-fueled privacy hysteria.

Indeed - and it doesn't expose anything. Anyone linking youtube and gmail together on a multi-user PC is at fault by their own doings..

Its a pretty bold headline - mainly its just a really dumb/annoying feature but a security risk it isn't.

This does not expose your privacy, you do.

Only you see that information when you are logged in, not the public. If you show it to somebody it is your own fault. It is not publicly displayed, it is privately displayed!!!

i concur. this feature is ON by default. google is making some bad design features with their products. their "do no harm" motto is out the door when it comes to privacy.

No it isn't When you have a google account linked to youtube account its standard feature which can not be removed/off, and mighty annoying big blob of screen estate too.

Allen McDuffee is a moron! From what I've seen this feature is turned off by default.
