BUSTED! The Google POLICE.

This morning I signed into my Google+ and was greeted with this.



My soul iced over. The law had finally caught up with me.



I'm guessing the Google Police want me to change my name from "JC Little - The Animated Woman" to simply, "JC Little".

For the record (← haha, see what I did there? record?), I'm not a proponent of total anonymity on the web. But only cuz it seems to be engendering a lack of accountability and irresponsible behavior. Nicknames and pseudonyms are ok, and I appreciate that sometimes we need to protect ourselves. But some folks (Trolls and Haters) tend to hide behind them like some people hide behind hoodies.

So what's next for my G+ account? I'm on review. I had to submit links to my LinkedIN and Facebook to prove I am "JC Little". Can you smell the stinkie poo-poo IRONY?

And if they kick me off....I can promise you one hell of an awesome ass-kicking mofo post. They'll never let me out of Google Jail after that.

I love ya!

  4. LOL! G+ has bugs...... eeew! Sleep with the lights on while you're in the slammer. You don't want to wake up covered in bugs. *leans close & whispers* should I bake you a cake with a file in it?
    Good Luck!

  6. DanaK - There's the other side of the NYM phenomenon - anonymity for safety's sake. Respect.

  8. Wow. Awesome post and hilarious. I shared it on my G+ account and hope that my G+ dev friends too notice. How silly.

  10. Taariq - leave it to me to poke holes in stuff. With drawings. Holey drawings.

    Gee....I really hope they let me keep JC Little though. I understand about removing The Animated woman, but everyone knows me as JC.

  11. As a person who has formally taken on a pseudonym because I just happen to BE THE ONLY PERSON IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE WITH MY NAME and if you google my name you can see the vibrators I have in my Amazon wishlist (trust me, I've tried to disable the "make Wishlist public" function that Amazon so helpfully activates as a default FOUR times without success) AND an aerial photo of my house AND a listing on my professional licensing board's website that lists both MY ADDRESS AND MY PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT, gee...I don't know...maybe I'd like to write professionally on the internet under a different name since there are in fact maybe whackjobs who might come stab me in the night.

    I hope the Google police set you free soon. If not I think I can smuggle you in some cigarettes.

    I love you, by the way, JC Little-animated woman. I've never told you this before, but I do. I hope we can still be friends. I promise that I am a 40ish woman who blogs. I'm not a weird guy living in my basement. And if I was I'd sure know how to fool G+ or FB anyway.

  12. Chloe - ACK. May no whackjobs stab you in the night cuz that would suuuuuuuck! That sounds like a nightmare. Fark. Google FAIL.

    Pretty sure we can still be friends even though you just professed your love for me. Can you smuggle me in some Chardonnay instead of cigs? YAY!

  13. Chardonnay it is. Only the best for a mastermind criminal impersonator like you.

  14. Bwahahahahaha...I knew you were a thug at heart!

  15. Had the same thing with me JC my friend. Mind you, I do only use Google+ to promote our comics to over 5000 people...

    Apperently my name couldn't be Beau "Boo" Kelly, even though it is my name.

    MC Says hi, oh, and gratz on that top ten list. Maybe we'll meet you there one day. ;)

  16. They required a link to LinkedIn and Facebook to ensure that you are *Real*? Let us know if that worked, since neither of those fully enforce a *Real* policy.

  17. Oh SNAP! Handle your bizness JC!

  18. I wound up using my real name on Google+ because I was afraid I'd get cut off if I used "Techy Dad." It was a tough decision, though. Last year, I had an Internet Stalker. (Long story short: the woman thought I was lying about who I was and I really was someone else who was secretly in love with her. Thus, any denials were taken as more proof of my "lies.") One of the things that kept the experience from being completely terrifying was that the stalker didn't know my real name.

    Thankfully, my real name is common enough that I can get lost in the crowd to some degree. Still, I'd rather if Google would let me set my name to "Techy Dad" or "J L"

  20. Maybe G+ should add a place for nicknames, which should/would solve a lot of the identity crap going on. Personally, I like the full name regulation because it keeps us honest and accountable. However, there are many who also have an identity double, so the extra field might be a solution.

  21. I will bake you a cake with a file in it and an extra shiv.

    They are so trying to be facebook!

  23. I used a pen name on my personal blog, for the safety issue. Anyone who reads my blog is going to get there is a very real woman writing it. I ended up having to use my real name on Google+ because being banned from Google would totally suck. Sheesh! Sounds like Big Brother to me, and I am so not happy :-(. If you get stuck in jail, I will send you Chardonnay and a file baked in a chocolate cake. Seems there should be a Movement started!
