dear google plus;

thanks for putting the share button up on the dash, where it DOESN'T appear on your google voice page

thanks for the unlabelled icon that marks all notifications as read

thanks for all the automatic pop-up boxes & shit that use more computer resources & block the things you are trying to get to

thanks for generally making your code bloatier & less useful than it used to be

just in case you were wondering why i'm a "less-active" g+ user, than i used to be... 

:p
