Clarification: When I write, I don't prepare or organize my ideas, I just write what I would say if I was talking to you in person, so sometimes my blogs end up a little messy. I don't even proof-read what I write before posting it so you may find grammatical mistakes and poorly written sentences. Sometimes I'll read my blogs a day or two after publishing them and I may re-write things that weren't too clear and any embarrassing grammatical mistake. Also, English is not my first language, so I apologize if reading my blogs become a struggle. Of course, if this is the case, I would imagine you wouldn't continue reading.

Dear Google Plus Team, Regarding My Custom URL...

Dear Google Plus team,

While this really is not the end of the world, or even a minor inconvenience, I'd like to say fuck you for not approving the custom URL I wanted to use (+ce54r), the one I use in every single social network I've joined in the past  decade, the one that I've used and still currently use several Google services, like YouTube, Orkut, Blogger and Google Wave. The one that makes the most sense.

When I submitted my preferred custom URL to be reviewed by the Google Plus team I got the impression that I had a choice, and that you were going to take my opinion into consideration, but I guess I was wrong. I think even a 5 year old can see that "ce54r" is a better choice for my custom URL, since it's consistent with 99% of my social media and non-social media online presence, and also because it's clearly not just a username to make myself anonymous and post offensive comments on YouTube or whatever, it's pretty evident that I never had a choice. But I know that you think that your "suggestion" is better for me, I've seen your bullshit videos.

I can't say I'm surprised, though, it's rather clear that some of the people making decisions in the Google Plus team are rather clueless about what they are doing and social media in general, clueless I'm telling you. I mean, come on, the failure of Google Plus was virtually impossible, if you were going to design a plan for its failure you would have had to work harder than in any of your other projects where Google has been successful. But somehow you did it, and that is... I don't know, impressive? It looks kinda pretty, though, one day it'll look really good, I'm sure.
So that's all I wanted to tell you. I'll take the URL that you "suggested", the one that you so wisely decided was the best for me, and you take my most sincere and warm FUCK YOU!, deal?


PS. I will not, I repeat, I WILL NOT change my YouTube username. Unless you force me, of course, but I hope you're not that much of an asshole.
