Yes, seen that just minutes ago... *smile* couldn't get through.

Yesterday Digg had a front-pager about Google's bad deeds, but it was flagged
as potentially inaccurate after a short time.

Look at the bright side, John. You can erase the cookies. And then hope that
Microsoft's WGA does not begin to distribute its IP address-timestamp
database. Big brothers are watching. be careful what you search for.
Scr00gle flush their logs every 48 hours.

Best wishes,
