Has anyone else deleted their google account recently?

No. I deleted mine a year ago. It's still there though. This merger made it obvious.

If you got rid of your Google account, what did you switch to for email?

No, although the quality of pretty much everything Google related has gone down considerably in recent memory. Searches in particular are becoming downright worthless - I search for a phrase in quotes and get top results (ones that *aren't* the ad pseudo-results) that don't even contain the phrase!

I have the same problem with Google searches now. I figured that the search commands had just changed and I needed to re-familiarize myself with how to use a search engine. Searching with + and "" used to be a straightforward affair and now my results are rarely what I intended.

I've also found that certain services which came with my Android phone have gone down in quality, such as when I was forced to switch from Google Places to Google+ Local, and I was pushed into creating a Google+ account so that I can even use a lot of features that I used to have free 'anonymous' access to.

I think the internet would be a far, far better place if it weren't anonymous the way it is now, but just forcing users of certain products to no longer be easily-identified is going to put those users at risk while the rest of the internet maintains its anonymity. I don't like it.

Hell yeah. I always get crap when I tell people I still have a hotmail account I use.
