Google Plus Deleting Accounts En Masse: No Clear Answers

A striking number of Google+ accounts have been deleted in the last 24 hours as the new social network struggles with its community standards policy around real names - alienating and frightening the people it aims to serve.

The story is too old to be commented.

I actually had this issue. Not with my name personally, however when searching for people there were several accounts under the same name. Need a good example? Go search David Hayter.

I know companies registering profiles for promo purposes would suffer since they wanted those to be separated, but Business profiles have not been introduced on the full scale yet.

Saying Google+ is going to die from this is like saying you stood next to a guy that was smoking a cigarette once so now you're going to get lung cancer. That's ridiculous.

That analogy sucks. You didn't follow my logic at all.
