I actually didn’t start out on G+ using a pseudonym. I assumed wrongly that they’d let me have my “nickname” display as my normal name & let me keep my “real” name secret, but the cat was out of the bag long ago, so both my long-standing pseudonym & my Google profile & everything I do with Google, and my Twitter account (since it uses my pseudonym) & my Facebook account eventually, are destined to die fairly shortly. I’m really annoyed about this. F*ck, even my Tumblr is going to have to go. I put too many eggs in one basket, & now pretty much everything I ever did or said is traceable by Google. Well, that’s going to have to stop. New pseudonym will be recorded separately & I’m going to have to contact each of my friends individually to tell them where they can find me.
I have finally been flagged. 8/24/11.
I am angry and disheartened, even though I knew it was pretty much inevitable. +Wired Ferret is not a wasponym, even though it is my name.
I thought about changing to something else, Anne Shirley or Jean ValJean, but no, I think that +Wired Ferret dies here, until the names policy is revised. I respect the other people who have changed their names and carried on the fight. I reserve the right to change my mind. But for now, I am walking away from the social network that doesn’t want me.
Which is a pity. It’s awesome technology. I love a ton of things about how it works. Just not this.
You can find wiredferret on livejournal, or wired on dreamwidth.
https://plus.google.com/104530762508521483197/ Cuck Wannabe. Sure it’s mature content, but I wasn’t posting anything offensive. Even invited other friends etc. Disabled on 4 August. Still disabled, but I can see everything, streams and all. Just can’t post.
I gave them an alternative name, Eligible Cuck, with numerous links to the pervasiveness of that nickname all over the internet too. But I think Google just doesn’t want unknown mature adult profiles on their SN. Yet, they tolerate celebrity porn stars like Sasha Grey, and even other stage name porn stars.
Profile is not viewable by friends they tell me.
Google + killed me twice I don’t recall the dates but you can find the info at www.rainydaysuperstar.com
You won’t find me on G+ as anyone else
I did change my name to something completely made up for one day just to see if they would lift the suspension
And I promptly changed it back
My name is Rainyday Superstar
I will not let Google or anyone else take that away from me
