Google Still Doesn't Get It

First they blew it with Buzz.

Now they blew it again with their latest "improvement", integration of Google Apps accounts into Google Accounts.

The bottomline of this "improvement" for me? Carefully crafted separation of online personas by interest destroyed. Different persona's identity and profile now slapped together into an indivisible mold, all relations blown to smithereens - with no [obvious] way to restore the state of affairs.

Starts looking more and more like the Lord of the Rings...

Hullo? Google? There *was* a good reason I created all these accounts - I *did* want to keep them separate. Yes, it is your decision to lump them together, but it is a straw towards the critical mass of people willing to walk away from your infrastructure.
