How to get blocked (a little rant)

Just in case you want to get blocked by me here on Google+, here are two simple ways on how to achieve this:

(1)
Repeatedly invite me to the same community, after I've declined your first request.
I am not interested in communities with broad topics. There is a reason why I declined your first invite and I will not change my mind with your second, third, fourth,... invite. I can choose my communities on my own - and so far I have joined only very few.
A sure shot to get blocked is to invite me to your own personal community, where you expect me to share my photos for you.

(2)
When posting an update always select your circles instead of 'Public' and make sure to check the checkbox on the bottom to email all 500 participants of each of your circle of your update of paramount importance.
If you think that your update requires this kind of attention in my notification stream it's probably not that great and not worth viewing. It's just plain annoying having to read this kind of unsolicited noise (or SPAM) between my notifications! If I think you post great stuff, changes are that I will already have you in my circles. If not - annoying me won't help.

And finally to all those that refrain from (1) and (2): THANK YOU

Top Down for Dummies Beginners

I thought a while, whether I should upload this picture to the February +Drink and Click™ challenge as this was taken as a joke. But then I've thought Why not?

Very entertaining and so true. Awes... Very good talk!
 
Which of the following is awesome: your lunch or the Great Pyramid of Giza? Comedian Jill Shargaa sounds a hilarious call for us to save the word "awesome" for things that truly inspire awe.

Leonard Nimoy’s Passion for Photography

Actor Leonard Nimoy passed away today at the age of 83. While famous for his role as Spock in the original Star Trek, what a lot of people may not know is that Nimoy was also a passionate photographer.

I hardly remember what Kirk did, but I remember so many things Spock did. So for me Star Trek is Spock is Leonard Nimoy

At least that means that they will not abandon G+ entirely. It just will be different and hopefully even better, especially for photos, which always felt like some kind of lightweight workaround integration of Picasa into G+.
 
Just wanted to confirm that the rumors are true -- I’m excited to be running Google’s Photos and Streams products!  It’s important to me that these changes are properly understood to be positive improvements to both our products and how they reach users.

Tower on Fire

Never mess with the saturation slider, never mess with the vibrance,... aw snap! I just couldn't resist here to bring up the colors of that evening after the +Drink and Click™ Stuttgart, Germany event at the Höhenpark on the Killesberg.

Introduction
I am a passionate amateur photographer and rather shoot things than people.

Therefore I am more interested in constructive criticism than in plain "awesome picture" comments. Tell me what I can do better!

For a living I am a software user interface developer designing high priced enterprise software.
