Oh, snap

Meanwhile on Google+

Even harsher: the above was swiped from a post with the title
"6 So-Bad-They’re-Actually-Still-Bad Scams."

I just don't get this Facebook/Goog+ walled-garden stuff. Was AOL's approach so successful they want to repeat it?

As I understand it, the current groupthink is that knowing connections between people is ad-sales-gold, because supposedly, you will run right out and buy the same crap your friends just bought, if they tell you about it on some social network.

I think Facebook is going to be DotComBubble II. Not that I'm rooting for that. Just a gut feeling.

Heh, discovered this post by logging into G+ for the first time in months.

Hoping not to get captcha blocked...

BTW, another friend had a problem like you did. He speculated that it might have been connected to his having a bilingual keyboard. This seems unlikely to me, but just out of curiosity: are (or were) you using something other than a standard US keyboard?
