Submission + - Is Google Requiring Legal Names on Google+? (blogs.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The debate over Real Names on Google+ is intensifying, and Google is not giving many answers. The official word is that legal names are not a requirement; the official policy says to use "the name that you commonly go by in daily life." But there are already reports of people being suspended from the service for not using their legal names. A blogger's e-mail exchange with a Google representative, the first published clarification of the policy, sheds little light on the subject. Q: "How does Google define 'the name that you go by in daily life'?" A: "Unfortunately, I cannot go into more detail."
