* Nice to have you back in this NG
* Mikkel, I am aware of the subject line which will be bound to my name in
Someone in this newsgroup asked a similar question a month or two back. It
is not quite possible to limit the demands that reach from Google if I
recall correctly. That was the conclusion reached, I think. My recollection
tells me that the best move would be to contact Google saying that your
dedicated server is knocked on too hard.

Call them to get an E-mail address and then be in touch with a real person
Hope it helps,
