Google Buzz fizzes out #email

🕤︎ - 2010-02-13

It sounds like Googles new Buzz thingamajig has some annoying problems especially to users of Googles services that aren't drenched in only friends.

Ouch.

As usual (?), Google is quick to respond to the problem.

Down from "fuck you" to "screw you" on the swear-o-meter. Good times.

More damage control from Google. For some reason it seems like they still think they can just play around with their services without thinking it through completely. I guess that with more and more people depending on your service (and the perpetual "beta"-sign removed), you have to be more careful than that...

I'm happy to run my own email.

To avoid spam many websites make you fill out a CAPTCHA, or log in via an account at a corporation such as Twitter, Facebook, Google or even Microsoft GitHub.

I have chosen to use a more old school method of spam prevention.
