Naturally, a lot of discussion on the issues raised in and around my last post happened elsewhere on social media. Mostly Google+, as that site tends to have the largest gamer population1.

Because I don’t want it locked in a proprietary social network bubble, I’m going to revise and condense a lot of what I posted and what the discussion moved on to here.


  1. As well as some really ardent defenders.2 Despite posts auto-truncating, a random algorithm deciding which posts to display in the first place because gød forbid you’d want to see what the people you followed posted, a UI that’s slow in everything but Chrome3, and a page design that actively hates wide monitors. 

  2. Mention that all the evidence points to G+ dying sooner or later and you get walls-of-text “proving” that it won’t based on some loony’s anecdotal experience that totally ignores how Google treats its services. 

  3. But that’s true of every Google tool. Docs in Firefox and Safari is a laggy sack of shit.
