I normally shy away from intervening, but your comment is nicely provoking. First your use of the term "elitist" is not contextualized and defined so it's hard for me to understand your real intent.
If I venture a speculation, your perception of "elitist" is anyone that has somehow acquired a "large" number of users according to your
perception; I'd like to see if you had defined this circle as "elitist" as well if you were a part of it.
Also, you appear to not have much describing yourself in your profile, that is probably what you would consider not being an "elitist"; granted you can do whatever you want to with your G+ account
, that fact remains that, with all due respect, that is what I call not being interesting or being obscure enough not to be circled. Also your posts are few and far between; I also call that not being interesting.Please, note that when I call you "not interesting" I am strictly speaking from a Google Plus prospective; for all I know, you could be a great guy if we met, but that is not possible to ascertain in the virtual confines of Google Plus, especially without any profile info and/or sparse postings and participation
But, the most important thing is that you probably don't even know half of the people in this circle, nor do you know (and probably care), how they have acquired those followers or their level and most importantly type of participation in Google Plus. Thus your characterization is completely unfounded let alone stereotypical to begin with.
