Under Mail Settings -> Buzz there's a link to disable Google Buzz. The help text under it says "This will disable Google Buzz in Gmail and delete your Google Profile and Buzz posts."
Unfortunately, if you have Google+ set up, the window that comes up when clicking "Disable Google Buzz" gives you the option to "Delete Google+ content" or "Delete your entire Google profile".
Neither is what I want to do. I can't tell if Buzz got disabled anyway and this is just a bad workflow, if there is no way to disable Buzz at all now, or if I should go about it another way. Is there a way to disable Buzz without affecting Google+ or my overall profile?
