I joined Google Plus a while back. I wanted to jump on and test out the service. I really like the service offering as I do with most Google products. Today is a little different. Today I have had a change of heart about offerings from Google and it makes me a little sad and pissed at the same time.
This is what I posted on Google Plus and I also sent it in feedback form.
I regret to inform you that I will not be changing my name. It is not that I’m trying to hide from you or from the government. I do have a verified account with you all; so you know who I am.
I have been a long supporter of Google and their service offerings. I’m going to boycott Google+. I’m done with your social networking.
Sure I will continue to use your services, just not this one. Yet another social networking sit that I have joined and will be leaving because of stupid bull shit from the people that run it.
I also know that you want people to use their real names because some people hide behind fake names. I’m not one of those.
So to you Google I give a big FUCK YOU GOOGLE+ and say good by. My name is Mark Pipkin bitches. So suck on these fucken nuts. ,,|,,
So as you can see this has really upset me. I thought that because I had gone though the trouble of verifying my account with Google so long ago that this might not have happened to me. It would appear that it doesn’t matter if you have proved who you are before, they still want your real name up on Google Plus.
I don’t mind giving my name to people that ask for it. It is not like I’m trying to hide from anyone. I am still going to speak my mind no matter what name I fly under. I just don’t want to use my real name online, and I’m not going to. I’m not going to use a service that requires me to do so either.
So piss off Google Plus. I hope it was a good for you as it was for me.
