So Google Plus is a place of public discourse, with gradations of privacy, but with no anonymity or pseudonyms (allowed)? How Google-like; I'm not so sure that's a good thing.

- That must mean you don't have a bank account, credit card, any insurance, you have never flown a plane or bought anything online.....
for all of those things you had to give your real name and reveal stuff about yourself to "faceless organisations".
Your bank knows almost everything about you by knowing what you buy and where you buy it, who has transferred money to you etc.
Do you really trust City Bank more than you trust Google?Jul 20, 2011
- I suggest that we award some equivalent of a Godwin point to whomever uses the argument: if you don't like how I roll, you can leave Google+.Jul 20, 2011

- +Carrsten Johan Thessen Who said anything about a fake profile? I've been on google for years with this email address which through the course of development of technology BECAME a profile.
Sure I've used banks, took flights etc but the info I give them is what they need to provide me the service I need. Banks and Airlines do not need to know how often I buy a certain soap, every comment I make on google plus or what my high score is in Medal of Honour.Jul 20, 2011
- You are missing my point. I am not telling people to leave google+, I am mearly stating that they have the option. As opposed to the way Carrsten gave two options, use real name or leave. No middle ground. Even if you don't like how I roll you are still perfectly welcome to enjoy all the glory of google plus. However, should you choose, you MAY leave. Nothing Nazi about my statement. In anyone is Nazi it's the ones giving ridiculous ultimatums.Jul 20, 2011
