Am I the only voice in the wilderness who thinks the requirement of a Google+ account to leave a review for an app is just plain WRONG ?

One of the great things to come from the world of apps is user reviews. Sure, users have been able to review products forever, but with apps, it has become one of the main methods by which the merits of an app are judged. And now, user reviews on Google Play are getting a little more personal with a new update from Google.
When trying to purchase in-app items, google play selects the wrong google account and do not allow the user to correct it.
I have two google accounts, one private and one business. The private account is the default in google play when buying and installing apps. Though when trying an in-app purchase, the business account is choosen and cannot be changed.

After I noticed that my old Google account showed my photo where now I only get teh standard photo avatar on my Moto X....
I'm sure it not the phone just an account setting but I cant seem to figure it out.
I have a photo in my contact and in my Google + yet it still does not show up.
Say what you want about Google+, but it incubated two great products at Google: Hangouts for video meetings and Google+ Photos. While Photos is still deeply integrated with Google+, Hangouts is starting to grow up and it’s shedding some of its Google+ past today. Until now, for example, you had to have a Google+ account to use Hangouts. Starting today, that requirement is gone.
Google has announced some new security settings for Google Voice that will impact how users access voicemail. If a user accesses their account using the phone they have marked as Mobile, they now have the option of requiring a PIN to be entered before accessing voicemail.
Samsung's & pure Google& , Android 2.3-based Nexus S 4G phone updates the Nexus S design with Sprint's 4G and the awesome new Google Voice service. However, the 4G WiMAX service available on this four-inch, 1GHz smartphone can't compare with Verizon's speedier LTE, and battery life is disappointing, says this eWEEK review....
