There are two problems:

i) The real names policy
ii) The cleansing of accounts by some algorithm which apparently doesn't allow for humans

What is Google thinking when applying this policy +Vic Gundotra +Bradley Horowitz !?

This is crazy after breaking the story about Google+ accounts being deleted for not complying with the "Real Names" policy, and my continuing coverage on CBSi's ZDNet about the "Real Names" Google+ debacle.

My account has been flagged for not complying to the Google+ "Real Names" policy.

My account will be banned in two days. I will lose services I use daily.

Hey +Vic Gundotra +Bradley Horowitz +Chris Messina +Joseph Smarr +Louis Gray +Amy Walgenbach

This is entirely ridiculous, especially from a user experience perspective.


It is my real name.

I AM complying with your policy.

#2 bothers me ... 9 times out of 10 I fail the CAPTCHA test and I read the article in NYT about Cornell University's work on an algorithm that reviewed ratings to detect fake ones. The sample fake one being something in line with my own writing.
 
Hmm, you sound like a human to me FWIW ;)
 
Good to know! Otherwise I would need to trade in my medical plan for a mechanical maintenance one.
 
Do you think you would notice the difference in how they treat you? ;)
 
Hmm ... good point. Though they might not shove me in an MRI if I were on a mechanical one. ;)
