I think the issue raised in this article is not about hiding behind a pseudonym in order to abuse, but protecting your personal identity in order to protect from abuse. Women who post on skeptical blogs are particularly susceptible, because their gender can often be inferred by their name, and being female seems to bring forth a larger than normal amount of hateful and threatening comments. I think if you are a fairly prominent blogger with a carefully protected identity, then Google+ is not a space you can be in at this point, which unfortunately limits your access to social media.
