Why I’m leaving Google+

I’ve been thinking about this a lot, lately, and I think it’s time to start cutting way back on my G+ usage or maybe even leaving completely. If I do decide on cutting back and not leaving completely, I am going to start posting only about my bicycling, my running, my Open Source/Linux/BSD interests, and personal stuff from time to time. I’m no longer going to post about politics or my animal rights work and Vegan lifestyle. I’m sick and tired of all the trolling and hateful comments when I post about animal rights and being Vegan. Honestly, I think there are people that join social media sites just to start arguments and to spread hate. I’m very, very tired of all of it and it has no useful place in my life. And I feel sorry for people who feel they need to act this way towards others.

Anyway, I’m off my soapbox. I’ll be on Twitter and Diaspora much more since attacking my interests and beliefs seem to happen far less there than on G+. Obviously, those sites aren’t perfect but, at least, it’s a bit more civil.
