OK, true enough.

Indeed - I'm posting here to a list where (if anyone knows me!) it might be by either name. And it's not something I actually care *desperately* about - I like both forms of my name.

The Facebook account is probably temporary, as I needed it to login to something for a project, and there was no workaround.

Anyway, this is not the place for me to talk about my reasons for wanting or not wanting a Google+ account, since I'm fairly sure no-one else cares!

This point of Duncan's is probably more relevant to more people.

It's also worth noting that I am an avid used of google code and happily use google groups - it's just one policy I object to.
