"People change their names infrequently in the real world, so Google limits the number of times you can do this"

People change their online names fucking loads though, and we're in online space... This isn't your shitty Google+ site here, this is a YouTube name...

@cccam what google actually means: our engineering team(s) decided to de-duplicate your name all over the place for "performance" reasons and now it's an absolute nightmare to change your name. please don't do it, we haven't tested that code

@cccam watch me changing my legal name every few months to mess with google

@spacekatia I change my online handle every few weeks a lot of the time...

I know people on IRC who change theirs every few days just to fuck with people...

Changing nick online is pretty common really.

@cccam @spacekatia I know people who had theirs changed every hour.

@cccam honestly I respected google more before they got rid of google+. they should have stuck with it even though it wasn't popular instead of pulling the plug like a bunch of cowards

@keith They should have pulled the plug and returned everything to how it was before. Now everything is Google+ based, but G+ doesn't exist...

At least it's better than Microsoft shutting the stable gate before they've put the bloody horse in it...

@cccam Yeah I guess. but you've gotta admit Circles was a good way to limit who can see your posts, or at least, better than what other sites offer
