My irritation with this is very simple:
I just don't WANT the "extra baggage" of a G+ account.
I am fine with the Play store knowing exactly who I am when I post a review.
I even have a FB account which I use very infrequently to KIT with people in different states and usually only sign on when I get an email.
I just don't WANT or NEED another social networking account. Even having something sitting there unused bothers me in general. OCD, idk.
It's just dumb...I can't even think of a good analogy it's so dumb. Maybe like saying I MUST have a Turbo Tax account in order to sign on to my local bank's website or something. I have another way of doing my taxes, don't want a Turbo Tax account!!!
Yeah, no more reviews from me which is a shame because I used to try and provide helpful/objective reviews. Bad move.
