Google+ to Finally Support Pseudonyms

Google has finally come to their senses in the nymwars debate, and will soon support “other forms of identity“ for profiles in Plus. MuscleNerd and many others had their accounts suspended after Google sleuthed around and discovered that—egad— they weren’t actually using their real names, which resulted in an all out battle against omniscient identity management services. Online anonymity is an important issue, and many people (hackers especially) would prefer to keep their identities secret to avoid unwanted attention.
