Why Google+ Email Notifications Suck

Debate-ably one of the top trending social networks, Google's Google+ is the place to be. This doesn't mean you want to be reminded (via email) every 2 minutes. Here's why your email is so crammed with Google+ updates:
Google+, by default, sends you mail whenever someone.. "Shares a post with me directly", "Comments on a post I created", "Comments on a post after I comment on it", "Adds me to a circle", "Photos of me", "Wants to tag me in a photo", "Tags me in a photo", "Comments on a photo after I comment on it", "Comments on a photo I am tagged in", "Comments on a photo I tagged", or "Starts a Huddle conversation with me".
