Google "So in summary... Google has pulled the plug on support on a protocol they've helped popularize, after years of promising interoperability, for reasons that are dubious at best, and in a way that leaves people who don't jump to the new Hangouts app unable to talk to their contacts without any feedback that their IMs aren't getting through... And they've done that with no warning to anyone. I imagine there's a bunch of people out there wondering where some of their buddies have gone, or why their messages aren't getting responses, because this isn't documented anywhere." Google really messed this up. Such a dick move.

"Converting". Jesus, what is this? A damn religion?
Do we get to wear pointy hats and kill infidels?

LOL, you're the one using a damn religious figure by name... converting, enticing, switching, migrating, moving... whatever you want to call it, who gives a shit? Why not suggest a different term if it bothers you so much? Seriously, it's just a word. You're the one here trying to make some religious meaning out of it... I was just trying to make a point. I see you have nothing really to add other than bitching about choice of words.
