I've kept the TWiT brand off G+, honoring Google's request not to create brand accounts, and, as they requested, applied for their brand beta program. We're still waiting.

But not everyone is honoring the brand ban. Do brands that flout the rules get a free pass? I think Xeni raises an interesting question.
Seriously, google friends: Why is +Mashable News still chillin' with 100K followers while other "non-humans" have either proactively refrained, proactively closed their accounts, or been shut down (ie, ABC Radio News, LAUNCH)? I get that you're kind of overwhelmed with the response, but this is making a lot of people who are otherwise enthusiastic about your new product feel bad.
