I have been trying to find out if 'ripples' could be responsible for the unusual activity that has taken a bizarre turn with my profile in the last two months. Basically, at least one to three people per day add me to their 'circles,' however, 90% of these 'profiles' have little or no data or info about the person, and about half of them are incorrect, i.e. male photo/female tag. Most disturbing is that the majority are from Middle Eastern, South America and Asian countries. I have absolutely NOTHING in common with these people, especially the rap 'artist' thugs, Jihadist's, and most all the wacko lunatic fringe elements that are plaguing me like fleas.
Does this happen to others? If so, any suggestions on how to stop it? I report every one of them, but I might as well be pissing into the wind as nothing is ever done to stop it. My main concern is that these are far from friendly and, left unchallenged, would put me in bed with terrorists, communists and other criminal elements! I do not want to wall out potential new friends by closing my circles, but I'm ready to pull the plug on G+ altogether if this cyber-infiltration continues, I want NO part in it!
Please give me some useful information A.S.A.P.!!!
