oof, this sounds really bad. well good excuse to close it down.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

I'm an admin for our Ingress community and use Slack and G+ for that. G+ has always had problems but has become almost useless for us recently since they reacted to the data breach and shut down some of the features we used most, especially invite the whole community to events, and making adding new members more convoluted. Slack has problems too and we're using Telegram in it's place for some things. Still debating how to replace G+.
G+ is not actually going away, it's going to be killed off for mere mortals and focussed on enterprise use.

April 2019 is shutoff date, though if security is problem why the wait?
