If you, like me, disapprove of the way how Google deals with that matter, tell them! Send them your opinion as feedback. Rate down this page - http://support.google.com/plus/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1228271 - and click "the solution is not ideal". Comment on posts of Google employees.
As long this is just a matter that affects a couple dozen people amont millions, Google won't give a shit, but if a large group of people complains, they will have start to start moving their asses.
So, it is the same effort but the effect will be bigger if you post/address Google instead of the Slashdot forums.
