So, hello there G+ people. You wished me a happy bday on Jan 1st. Apparently I lied to Google about my bday (never trust a Jan 1st bday, all web developers know this). It's really July 2nd. Alright, back to not using G+, later!

TL;DR: Peace out. I'm ignoring G+ from now on.

So, I'm vain. I share stuff to G+ from Google Reader (this may end soon, just fyi) and I like seeing who comments on, reshares, +1s those things. That means I look at and click on the red button notification at the top right when I'm in GReader.

Today, G+ just got even uglier. When you hover over a person's name (in the list of who's added you) it shows that stupid new banner, too. This is, simply, too much noise in a small-ish space. I could critique it longer, but I don't want to give G+ anymore of my (sacred) attention. (Hint: your attention is sacred, too.) G+ is just getting too ugly, too unuseful, and too insular.

Thus:
So long and thanks for all the fish. No more GReader sharing. No more clicking on that Red button. If you need me, I'm over at grossmeier.net/about.

Also, if anyone has any tips on a Fx plugin that will git rid of the ugly top black bar on googe.com properties, send 'em my way!
