23055400 story Google's 'ID Validation' Is a Joke, But Not Funny 211 Posted by timothy on Thursday August 11, 2011 @06:23PM from the your-voice-is-your-password-so-yell dept. An anonymous reader writes "I was curious about the whole profile reporting and ID validation process on Google+ so I decided to do a little experimental work to find out just what is involved.
