MOar fun: G+'s TOSing people for pseudonyms might be grounds for lawsuits: http://cityofnidus.blogspot.com/2011/07/google-and-future-of-avatar-identity.html

I think it's a questionable point (because G+ and FB must have "we can revoke your account for any reason at any time" bits in their TOS), but if they *are* telling people they're removing accounts for fake-namery, that may be illegal--they're not allowed to decide what someone' "real" name is. It's possible they're not allowed to decide what names they will or will not do business with. (I dunno; is it legal to declare "I will not have any clients whose names begin with Q?" I'm pretty sure it's not legal to say "I will not accept married female clients using their maiden names; they must use their husbands' surnames.")
