iPhone Dev Team Key Member Muscle Nerd Suspended From Google Plus


by casey on July 25, 2011

iPhone Dev Team front person and famous iPhone hacker Muscle Nerd is not allowed to use Google Plus any more. Fastest Growing social network Google Plus has suspended MuscleNerd’s account for using the only name on the Internet that he ever used. Of course Muscle Nerd is not his real name.

Seems like Google’s social network is following some policy of revealing your real names on their network. MuscleNerd is the most reputable hacker in the jailbreak community and responsible for many iPhone relatedachievements.

The developer has more than 229,000 followers on Twitter and the number is always increasing. It clearly shows how influential he is. iPhone users who jailbreak their device needs no introduction of him. They always see the following face with a pineapple tweeting and posting announcements related to jailbreak and unlocks. Although we have found another image below it posted by him previously which shows his face as well.

Google Plus is still new if you compare it with Facebook or Twitter. Although its growing at an exponential rate. We all love the concept of Circles they are offering which we can not find in Facebook. But they should not do such mistakes of banning influential people.

Founder of Cydia, Jay Freeman as known as Saurik has posted his opinion with some good justifications:

Personally, I think this state of affairs is ludicrous… Google’s attempts to enforce what a name is don’t even stand up to the test of multiple cultures, much less the test of an online pseudonymous world. +Gowtham S, even, was forced into the position of specifying a last name, something he does not actually have, and therefore falling back to an initial of his father’s first name.

Meanwhile, one of my real-life friends, due to a very complex situation involving her parents’ names and legal status in various countries, has a compound last name involving a hyphen, a slash, and a set of parentheses: a name that certainly contains more than enough symbols to drive Google+’s new rules past that brink of “fails when confronted with real world data”.

On the other hand, Google Plus is following their own policies and we can not blame them. Your opinion is important to us. Share your thoughts by commenting below.
