Not sheepish, but individ-ewe-al

There are a lot of conflicting accounts coming out of Google right now. So far, my account - Green Knight - is active, and I am hoping it will continue that way. (It's attached to a throwaway Gmail under which I've commented on blogs for years, so losing it won't be a problem for me.)
I also think that people having two accounts - one as 'Jane Doe, HR Manager' (or publicist, or writer of erotica) and one as 'Janey D' (personal) isn't evil as such.
What is evil is that the decision appears to be made by a machine, and - see 'Ping' - automated processes don't take notice of non-European names. (I know several people aren't allowed on Facebook because their - real, legal, Native American Names - sound 'too fake' for FBs automated system.
I hope I'll be able to continue to use G+; I will not rejoin under my real name.
