Also, I think it should be a choice for me whether or not I want to provide my profile to people who would view my comments. I use G+ for various reasons and I do not want to use G+ for other reasons. The same for Facebook. There are times where I do not feel it is necessary or desirable to associate personal information on these social networks to certain online activities. I do not like being force to do so. If I want to and there is an option, I'll take it. Otherwise, I want the option to opt out at least.
