Just found another reason why "real names" in Google+ are not always a good idea. Now that Google is merging the "groups" function with its other tools, my mailing list, run by "Emergency Coordinator" for ARES activities. Since the mail can be sent by anyone in the EC leadership chain, a specific name is not possible...Call it a fail for using a role based assignment.
no plus ones
