No Comment

Many interesting things happened today, no doubt about it. I learnt that the much anticipated Deluxe Edition of Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti is finally out. But then I also learnt something about Google's use of CAPTCHAs.
You probably encountered many of those during your journeys through the Internet. You know, those annoying things that ask you to type a cryptic pattern of text in order to verify you are no bot? Well, Google recently took them a step further. The layman thought this was in order to make the human verification process simpler; but the cynic read this article to learn that Google's CAPTCHAs are just another trick from the vast Google arsenal that is aimed at sucking in more private information from the people of this world.
Since Google's CAPTCHAs are a required step when one seeks to leave a comment on the pages of this blog, I urge you to not leave comments here.

As we already post comments here with the gmail account details, I doubt if reCAPTCHA is what will give Google the extra information it needs.
The article (as it say about himself) does not really say anything evil about Google, just that they have the technology to do so.

I assume that if you don't like this service, you will find a new home for your blog that will not force people to be followed by Google, till than I am forced by you to be followed!!!
