We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcoming and inclusive place that we want it to be. Thank you for expressing your opinions so passionately, and thanks for continuing to make Google+ the thoughtful community that it is.

Good move, but Google+? Who cares about Google+?

Actually I would argue that the decision to require users to use their true name was the single most important sucess factor for Facebook.

So it sounds like you never got the memo that Facebook is littered with fake names... You can point to several reasons Facebook became a success but I can't say `requiring real names` would make the list.
