I have a question about the pseudonym issue. As someone else already stated there is a lot of confusion if pseudonyms are allowed or not, so with this I would like to know if you allow pseudonyms or not?
My arguments: Pseudonyms are not fake names. Pseudonymous users aren't spamming or impersonating as someone else, they are themselves and to be honest, this is my real life name, but I have another pseudonym that I mainly use, so instead I use this one in fear that all my efforts I put into G+ until now will be gone because I'm forced to use my real life name. I'm pretty much a digital native and more people out there know me under my pseudonym instead of my real life name. As you state in your policy, you should choose that name that you are "commonly known by in your daily life and you are findable by your family and friends".
This post in your Google Policy Blog about "The freedom to be who you want to be" ( http://googlepublicpolicy.blogspot.com/2011/02/freedom-to-be-who-you-want-to-be.html
) and that you support three kinds of use and here on your help site about names and profiles you state, that it works "best" in identified state, but not that you HAVE to use it.
Please give us an answer because I find more and more friends of mine leaving G+ because of this issue, them being forced using their real life name. I really like your newest product but how can you be social if there is no one you know around you can be social with? Don't do the same mistake as Facebook did.
