  1. Wish you'd unblock a few pages! Like po.st which means some Facebook posts are inaccessible, and friendlyduck.com which prevents me accessing lix.in!

  2. Why would I do that? ... "po.st" is a 3rd party tracker, and "friendlyduck.com" is a 3rd party advertiser ...

  3. I entered my personal e-mail address for updates, only to see a Google verification popup, displaying my *gmail* address above my more private, personal one. (This happened because I was logged into YouTube in another tab.) So, now Google has cross referenced two e-mail addresses I did not want associated with one another. Google? Really? They're one of the worst (if not THE worst) offenders on the Internet. Couldn't you find another method of "human" verification. (Very disappointing...)
