    is seriously concerned that I won't use my real name on an account I've had for almost 8 years. They now periodically make me re-resister and the harass me because I won't change my user name. The last time they asked me to reset my account they said that I must sign in using my e-mail account.  Same with Google+ which I never registered for and don't want. Yet here it is on my tool bar it seems to have attached itself to my browser Mozilla Firefox and my e-mail which is a local indie account.. Yesterday a link to a blogger.com site had google telling me to re-register or else. It's a corporate state and if you violate their legal right to extort your data, eyeballs, and interfere with the commerce of cookies, and selling your information you a criminal. Reading the TOS has become as twisty as reading the reams of fly type in a bad mortgage.

      as I can't. Phew. Empathy for your agony, though. And I do fly into a minor rage whenever I have to register for these things and it's several annoying steps plus those horrible squiggled letters you're supposed to copy so it isn't spam but they make them unreadable. Somebody in their department has to pay for our agony. I am ready to strangle them with playdoh.
