The Spamonyms Arrive at Google PlusPosted: September 21, 2011
In the past few days I’ve had my first spamonym “followers” (presumably because I am posting on G+ publicly). And more prominent people like Howard Rheingold are already fighting them in the stream.
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again — if G+ is to maintain a shred of legitimacy about real names, they have to reduce spamonyms to near zero. It’s a little hard for people to stomach that they can’t hide their name if Asif Ali is running all over the place talking about “technogies”.
