Am I the only one thinking BFD?
Wh cares if someone whose app I bought gets my email address? I don't mind. THe Dev may need to contact me. Let me know about a new version.
The reason stated in the article?? "This will allow devs to harass people who leave negative reviews"???? Seriously? That's weak.
First off all: Google Play's NEW Policy is that in order to leave a review now you have to use your Google Plus account which leaves your real name in the comments. Your REAL name.
This is why I don't leave reviews at all anymore.
But... does anyone really believe a Dev is going to harass someone that leaves a bad review? Really? Yes, please Dev I dare you to HARASS me via Email because I left you a bad review. Please. Do that.
No one in their right mind would do that. Harassment via email leaving an electronic paper trail??
Come on. That was a very poorly written article.
Let's not be paranoid people.
