This is crazy after breaking the story about Google+ accounts being deleted for not complying with the "Real Names" policy, and my continuing coverage on CBSi's ZDNet about the "Real Names" Google+ debacle.

My account has been flagged for not complying to the Google+ "Real Names" policy.

My account will be banned in two days. I will lose services I use daily.

Hey +Vic Gundotra +Bradley Horowitz +Chris Messina +Joseph Smarr +Louis Gray +Amy Walgenbach

This is entirely ridiculous, especially from a user experience perspective.


It is my real name.

I AM complying with your policy.

These guys really know how to write shit-loads about absolutely nothing. Let alone re-dig up months' old articles and paraphrase them. ZDnet needs to die off already, their "journalism" is terrible.
 
That's kinda orthogonal to the issue here, but the few ZDnet articles I do come across via HN, etc. are usually worth reading IMO. I can't speak for every article though ;p
