If you signed up for Google+ or already ban then read
Google+ Plays Name Police, Conducts Baffling Censorship Crusade
Google VP: Why Google+ requires real names

Of note, banning in Google+ = banning Gmail, Picasa, etc.
 
quote
In other words, if a user opts to join Google+, they risk losing all of their services. And even if they manage to convince Google to lovingly restore those services, there's word that the content within (e.g. your pictures in Picasa, your emails in Gmail) may be dead and gone -- purged forever from cyberspace.

I don't like how increasingly easy it is becoming -

(damaging a person's credentials.)


How hard it will be to prove you didn't say something, recommend something, "like" something, download something, etc...

Digital evidence is an ethereal thing...

That would be unfortunate.
How do I delete a google + account and leave my other accounts active?

I just deleted mine. Will probably DELETE Facebook at the end of the summer. Most of my friends are 900 miles away so it's convenient, but by the end of the summer they'll be closer.

I use Jakedragon for a lot of different things and would hate for them to delete the email because I didn't use my real name.

Somethings are better left to the asking then broadcast to the world.

I just don't use any 'free' service for anything important.

Also... I know restoring Google usually wipes all contacts, mail, etc. I and Wife had Gmail Tech to restore Gmail accounts... Google Restoring means wiping account or service before give control back.

Losing then restoring Gmail will also very easy to wipe Android base phone/tabet/etc if only back up is Gmail for contacts. Thank god wife save old Palm phone and got most contact back.

I use Gmail for email to give out to web service the need/want current email. I wasn't in a hurry to try Google+. For one thing Google's "don't be evil" went out the windows years ago... I'm not surprise Google+ wants real names and bans users just pointing to ToS. "We said Real Name, we mean it. You can't/won't read ToS? Too bad for you."

Update:
Google Partially Backs Down From Google+ Censorship from DailyTech

Google+ name ban should not affect all of Google account.
But...

Google insists that it will only be punitive to abusive users, writing, "Of course whenever we review a profile, if we determine that the account is violating other policies like spam or abuse we’ll suspend the account immediately."

I don't like having my name out there. I have two accounts I use and now both of them are wrapped up in Googles sharing of data across different online applications.
Even my youtube is now tied to my google login.

I seriously thinking about getting rid of both google+ and face book.
I only joined google to see what it was about and I use face book to keep up with family but thats not going very well.

Besides all the drama I need is on PFF

Crap, nobody told me I was moving...

I guess I should pack or something. I'm assuming we will be staying at your place.

No need to pack. They'll come get you. But not the way you're thinking. You'll see the Google street view cars, then hear a knock at your door. Keep your hands in plain sight, please. Don't try to tell them anything, they already know.
