Apparently, a handful of Google Plus users are seeing red after their accounts were revoked without warning due to the usage of "questionable" profile names. Even William Shatner himself wasn't spared. To give Google the benefit of doubt, Google's policies does state that Google Plus members are prohibited from using pseudonyms, professional titles or unusual characters in their profile name.
