Illogical? William Shatner Gets Booted From Google+ (Update: He’s Back)

Actor and musician William Shatner has apparently had his Google+ account beamed up for “violating standards”, according to a tweet posted earlier this morning. He who loves TechCrunch tweeted the following message to his followers:

“My Google+ account was flagged for violating standards. Saying hello to everyone apparently is against the rules maybe I should say goodbye?”

Update: see, he’s back already. Can’t keep that man down.

Google+ is of course a brand new product, one that’s still in beta, so perhaps Google’s automated banning process is what got Shatner shunned from using the service. Florian Rohrweck, for one, believes a ton of users reporting Shatner’s profile as fake is what got the man suspended.

The actor himself hasn’t provided any details about the ban – nor has Google, who we’ve contacted about this – but I have a feeling that this was merely an anomaly and Shatner’s Google+ account will live long and prosper once it’s reinstated.
