I just posted the following feedback to Google +:

Hi, Google folks!

This is not a technical error but rather a matter of policy concerning the on line updating or refreshing of the Plus page.

Firstly, I have a problem with this new way of lifting up the latest commented posts at my home page. To be frank, I am not interested in comments added to ALL posts. This way it is harder to find the posts and comments that DO interest me. Also, I may miss a number of interesting fresh posts just because a number of much commented older posts keep popping up.

Another issue with update is that I used to be able to peacefully read and write at the spot of the page that I happened to be at. Fresh posts caught my attention only after I had completed what I was doing and scrolled back up to the top again. I very much liked this.

The present situation is that whenever somebody makes a fresh post or adds a comment on an older one my page moves respectively and I must find again the spot where I was either reading or writing. Needless to say that these new posts in their turn take up the position on top of my home page even if they are just comments to a post I was never enthusiastic about in the first place.

My suggestion is to return the original system or at least make these two approaches optional. I appreciate that the page refreshing is automatic but I do not want it neither to interfere with what I am doing nor to mess with the original chronological order of the posts.

Update (20.08.2011): As it looks now, the "jumping page" seems to have been corrected but the order of posts at home page is still not chronological. I am grateful for the half measure. I would be even more grateful for the other half.
