What do you think about this?

I expected more from Google+. A few days ago, I reported the person who is using the photo of my long time friend and colleague as their own on their Google+ profile. My friend, Sue, also reported this to Google and the burden of proving who she was what put on her. She's proven her identity as much as she can and Google is asking for documentation she doesn't have. Meanwhile, the bogus account with her photo continues to exist. How could Google support do absolutely nothing about this??  This feels a lot like the kind of crap I've experienced with administering pages on Facebook - just a circle of time wasting non-solutions.

I would have saved this rant and replied to Sue's original post, but the comments were disabled.
 
All my efforts to get this bogus profile removed (or at least my head shot) have been refused and ignored by Google support. What do I have to do to get this resolved?

This looks like it's going to be good. I'm going to check it out. I'm sleeping pretty well right now, but definitely have periods of time when that's just not happening, probably because of my thyroid. Or lack thereof.

Do your photos always look crummy? Have a Kindle and $2.99? You can learn how to properly compose the pic before you snap it. This great book from my friend and colleague, +Liz Masoner , explains in simple terms how to improve your photos. Composition is HUGE - learn how to get it right.

Can you save money buying cheap makeup without sacrificing quality? I didn't think this was possible, then I tried NYX Cosmetics. Check out my review for the best products to try.
Looking for the best cheap makeup without sacrificing quality? NYX Cosmetics are inexpensive and many are so good that they are dupes for premium brand makeup.
