More like I'm not too fond of Google's seemingly obsessive compulsive desire to catalog every bit of information they can get their hands on regarding everything and everyone. I like my privacy, and lots of others do, too.

Lots of folks don't realize that Google even retains all search data info. from each and every IP (along w/other identifying info) that visits Google.com permanently, as well. They're the only search engine that does it. Have to question the reason behind that when even Microsoft purges that data every 180 days and Yahoo, every 90 days.
