WTF is this "What's hot on Google+" crap that's being injected into my stream. Come on Google, don't start the facebook "you should really see all this other stuff you couldn't give two shits about" garbage!
Yes, there is a collapse option, but it shouldn't be there in the first place. It's all fine and dandy to add stuff like that but it should be OPT IN, not automatic. If they really really must have me see this awesome new feature, pop-up a window with an example and option to turn it on.
Please don't pick-up these bad habits from Facebook.
