please don't try to reach me via Hangouts. I do not intend to download or run the application.

Joseph H. Vilas: There was a way to get Hangouts from your contacts page. I see that's not there any more, but maybe that's because I want to Hangouts in Gmail, where you can still get to it. I'm hoping this isn't just because of some setting or extension I have, but I don't think it is.
Joseph H. Vilas: Hey, I understand they're updating Google Voice after 5 years if semi-benign neglect. I've stuck to it like glue through all that. I don't want to get my SMS in something I don't even know the name of, thank you.
Richard G: have I mentioned how much the new google+ sucks? Hey +Google+ your new interface, poor functionality, terrible comment handling, lack of searchability, stripping off hangouts and poor performance on OSX 10 suck. Very close to moving away altogether. Maybe tomorrow. I'm going to calm down first, make sure it really isn't worth me carrying on here. No I don't have Facebook or anything else. I'm thinking of just giving up social media because... this was the service I liked. Was.
