G+ & I have agreed to date other people
In other words, I'm done there. I'll leave my account up for at least a week, for friends there to see that I'm leaving. I might just leave the account & ignore it; I might delete it after that. I haven't decided.

As I said over there, I've realized something incredibly important:

I don't care about their service.

Yes, you can argue I care because I care about their making it into an Identity Service and trying to tell us how we should be named/present ourselves. That would be true. On the other hand, I do not like the Facebook/Google +/Twitter type of social networking: (usually) short, brief comments, with absolutely no threading and no easy way to figure out who is responding to whom.

I've gone without Facebook and Twitter for all of these years, and I'm not going to miss G+ when I'm gone. Sure, I'll miss some party invites. I already do; some of my friends organize on Facebook. However, I'll continue to survive that minor inconvenience.

I just feel sorry for all my friends at Google that have 25% of their bonuses tied to this.
