Busted by the Google+ Identity Police

Well, I suspected this would happen when I started hearing about Google+'s "Identity Policy." Boiled down, it says users must use their real name or a name they use in everyday life on their Google+ profile.

Yeah, well that's not going to happen here. Do you think I'm out of my mind?

So, for the record "Dr Ralph" did not meet their standard for real names. Am I surprised? Not particularly.

To their credit, Google does give you a chance to edit your profile so as to meet their standards. We'll just see if "Post Ralphaelite" passes muster. I have a feeling it may take several passes before I wiggle past their Identity Cop. For the record, Facebook didn't like "Dr Ralph," either.

Stay tuned.
