They eventually unlocked my account after providing them with scans of my photo ID, they sent me the following message. Short answer, I'm going to see about using Google+ for much more of my social media interaction:

The vast majority of friends and contacts I have made on Your platform, many I have never met in person know me by my pen-name of Nuwishas Tail. I have endeavoured to maintain my privacy by utilising my pen-name throughout my long patronage of your service. I find the recent policing of user names to be offensive and confronting. Whilst I appreciate your reasoning, the assertion that my legal name is what my friends and contacts will want to find me by is incorrect. Please note that I do not use my legal name as my email address, Nuwishas.email@example.com, nor as my Twitter username,@nuwishas_tail, nor my Instagram, Pintrest, AppleID, FetLife, The Lair of Lady Hecate and a number of other online social media and print publications.
I intend to operate under your terms of conditions, but strenuously object to being forced to open myself to this form of public exposure in a format at I have no control over, I would greatly appreciate he ability to control how I present myself, both as a writer and social media entity, but also as pertains to my family and various employers.

You're good. You're very good. My lords, my ladies, and everybody else here not sitting on a cushion!
Today... today, you find yourselves equals.
For you are all equally blessed. For I have the pride, the privilege, nay, the pleasure of introducing to you to a knight, sired by knights. A knight who can trace his lineage back beyond Charlemagne. I first met him atop a mountain near Jerusalem, praying to God, asking his forgiveness for the Saracen blood spilt by his sword. Next, he amazed me still further in Italy when he saved a fatherless beauty from the would-be ravishing of her dreadful Turkish uncle.
In Greece he spent a year in silence just to better understand the sound of a whisper. And so without further gilding the lily and with no more ado, I give to you, the seeker of serenity, the protector of Italian virginity, the enforcer of our Lord God, the one, the only, Sir Ulllrrrich von Lichenstein.
Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week.
