I tried some 5 times to share the link to my latest blog post on google plus today. it's about an old cemetery in my hometown. There is nothing  commercial, offensive or in any way objectionable about it. Yet every time I posted it, the post disappeared, and now I'm getting warning that I have violated G+ terms of service. Anyone have any idea what's going on?
