Yes, Google is giving really conflicting information. It looks to me like either Google is corporately lying and misdirecting and throwing up a smokescreen of confusing information, or Google's high level policy is opposed by Google's actual on the ground engineers. Or some mixture of both.

I absolutely don't think that having two accounts is evil! As I said to [personal profile] pne, I don't think "one person, one account" is a good policy for keeping out trolls and spammers, but it's a heck of a lot less moronic than the machine-based process of deciding that non-standard names sound 'too fake'! I personally don't mind at all if one person has accounts as Jane Doe and Janey D, but I also don't mind if one of them is labelled "Midnight Rose" or whatever. I think Google prohibiting the former would be annoying but somewhat understandable; prohibiting the latter is just a disaster for oh so many reasons.

Can't believe they suspended Ping; also small world shock that you know him! He's a friend of a friend of mine I wouldn't expect to have any overlap with your circles.
