So this just happened.
A few minutes earlier I wrote a posting to the effect of, "hey y'all, how come none of you pointed out this cool cross genre band to me?", with a link to a youtube video of the music in question (not to my knowledge racist, sexist, or otherwise against G+' ToS; the video has 150k views and has been on youtube for over 7 years).
So, I tried to post; the posting appeared to have gone through (it appeared on the page from whence I posted), but produced no valid posting-link, nor allowed me to edit. The posting, for all intents and purposes, did not exist, despite seeming to. ("That's virtual!") No error message, no diagnostic, nothing. Fine, I thought, maybe Chrome's acting funny again, or one of my extensions has bit-rot or whatnot, so I'll try another browser. Different browser, same problem, same lack of diagnostics. Fine, I thought, maybe my session's just gone wonky. I switch away and back to this account and see what gives. That finally produced the below, without of course telling me what they objected to. The music? The fact that I tried several times to post it because I was not given a reason for the failure (but surely then, it should have succeeded on the first attempt?)? Some other posting of mine? I looked at my gmail account for an explanatory mail, and if one was sent, I can't find it. Need I say that the "Learn more" link was unhelpful?
 
If you wanna threaten me, fine. If you wanna threaten me without telling me what you even think I did, because I might be the sort of person who would then try to rules-lawyer their way around that exact phrasing, fine — at a push. As long as we're talking about access to G+, which isn't my primary platform anyway. But to imply that you might e.g. take the hatchet to my phone's usability, over some undisclosed grievance on a social platform strikes me as harsh and unreasonable, and makes me happy I don't use G+ much, don't have my photos on Google, don't use that Google web radio thing with the unmemorable name, and don't use Google Red (in fairness, I would have paid for that, were it available in my country — that's "youtube without ads" by the way, not the naked people thing with a similar name). So to wrap this up, the one Google product that I wouldn't care to be locked out of is android (it has its faults, but I've got a few dollars invested in apps and such), and I don't feel like risking that by posting here (beyond this explanation), so adieu until I change my mind, I guess. If nothing else, this gives me undesired confirmation that using several strongly unrelated services from the same provider is an unpleasant Sword of Damocles. Make of that what you will.

Zen music ("make me one with everything" — industrial guitars, Darkest of the Hillside Thickets sensibilities, Electric Six vocals, and ample helpings of electro-swing and steampunk. It's hard to describe music that sounds like Orishas in one song and — you know what, I'll just go with the quote of, "Industrial Hip-Hop Opera").

I'm glad it's not just me.
I tried to re-watch the Emmerich Godzilla and couldn't help thinking, wait, isn't this the Beast from 20,000 fathoms?
 
(The greater question of course being, why is Emmerich still allowed to make movies? None of the ones I've seen had, for lack of a better word, heart. Lifeless Godzilla, lifeless Poseidon, ID4, 13th floor, and I'm hearing very bad things about Stonewall too.)
