    My feelings about Google regarding this:

    ‘‘Sure... if you're rounding Pi down to three. Please don't make me add 'rounding Pi down to three' to your list of crimes.’’
    — Emperor Pius Dei I

    If violence wasn't your last resort, you failed to resort to enough of it.

    There are only 10 types of people in this world: those who understand binary and those who don't.

    I can't say I'm a fan of this decision.

    Well I guess I won't be giving reviews. Won't have a G+ account. I could just see all my contacts and info on my phone coming up in some random Google search linked to who knows what LOL Google almost as bad as Apple!

    Just curious how we feel, now that the change has been made?
    I have not reviewed anything since this change was implemented.
    I do have a G+ account, but I do NOT want my real name all over the Play store. Sorry, I just don't.
    I have noticed new reviews are WAY down. Most reviews are from "Google User". Very few apps that I have noticed lately are reviewed.
    I am actually leaning on Amazon more now for apps. If I want an app I will check Amazon first. Always.
    Not the case before.

    *Note: I am a huge Google fan. Not quite as huge anymore.

    Me neither... The switch was not good from my POV. Too bad this will lead to fewer good apps. This removes incentive to improve any app since there will be far fewer reviews. A 4+ app with ten reviews going to be quite as trustworthy as a 4 + app with thousands of them.

    Is it REALLY to discourage Spam reviews, or is it REALLY being used to get people to sign up for Google+? I think we know.

    Don't treat me like an idiot, Google. I can sift through reviews myself and can tell the stupid ones from the real ones.
    Thank you, well put.

    Pretty much this.

    Dont be fooled. this is similar move to what Blizzard Entertainment tried to do with its "Real ID" method of posting on the forum, which their excuse was the same of limiting trolling by holding them at a risk against their safety.

    This just shows that these companies dont really care about their consumers. Because ask yourself this,,,

    How would having your real name on reviews, STOP THE TROLLING? unless, there was a concern for having your name up there, like lets say, safety from stalkers and manics perhaps?

    they trying to get more G+ support. Just like Blizzard was trying to use Real ID to make a social site for their video games...
