I just received the following email. Not sure what "have not been used in a while" means or if in fact these listings will just be removed from my account.

Any insights?

A number of Google+ pages associated with your listings have not been used in a while. To simplify your Google My Business listings, the Google+ pages listed below will be removed from our system in 30 days.

Please note that this change will not affect how your business listings appear on Google Search or Google Maps.

Visit our help center to learn how to download copies of your old data before it's deleted. Or, to keep one or more of your Google+ pages active, click on the appropriate link below, then post or comment on someone else’s post within the next 30 days.

Sincerly,
The Google My Business Team

Did GMB misspell sincerely? And why would GMB be taking down Google+ pages?

That was a copy and paste from their email. What I did not post are the list of 21 GMB pages that were in the email that are in my account.

It's referring to the G+ Brand pages. For a while now, if G+ pages aren't being used on a regular basis (like once a month I think), they will disable the G+ page. They can re-enabled, but it will be like starting from scratch. If you're not posting on those pages, I wouldn't worry to much about them since they aren't a ranking factor. But if you have G+ links on sites and are not posting there, they will bomb out.
