Apparently clicking the link at the bottom of gmail is *not* enough to disable google buzz...

Thanks, Google! I really like putting in the effort to learn how to do this, it's a great way to spend my time, and even better, will certainly enhance my computing skills. Cool!  :Thmbsup:

Grrrrrrrrr......

Wave and Buzz have very different goals and both still seem legitimate as separate systems when considering the existence of the other. So if you were developing for the purpose of Wave - i.e. group collaboration - then Buzz does not invalidate that at all IMO.

All right... now I *am* mad at google.  >:(  I went into reader, and it said one new person was following me- my old landlord.  It also said I was following 19 people.  It auto-added these people- people I must say that I didn't want to follow me or to follow.  I was able to purge myself of my new followers (I think), but now it says "request sent" in reference to a lot of people that I don't want to follow, and frankly didn't want to contact regarding this.  And I can't remove these so-called 'requests'! They need to clean their act up FAST!  I've emailed a lot of people over the years I've had my gmail account, and for them to mine those old 'contacts' in this way is inexcusable!  :down:

Another crappy thing about Buzz (can you tell my attitude is souring?)... It doesn't mark things as read across its own services! So if I read something in buzz from someone's reader feed, I have to mark it read there too!

I never thought about lawyers/journalists/doctors/anyonewithpriviledgedinformation and buzz- but someone did.

1. Blog post to lawyers about turning it off - http://bit.ly/caBn6s
2. Blog post to lawyers about legal implications - http://bit.ly/bJC1CD

It's not wise to piss of litigation minded masses, IMO...

Guys, have you seen the crap Google is in for the privacy breach this thing caused?
I'm now VERY GLAD I opted out of getting a Gmail account.  :o :o

I guess it's fixed now, but the damage is done.
That 'buzz' you hear is the hive in a grumpy mood...

Yes! Yes, he was!
Shook his hand I did, fascinating personality, really a great man.
We need more like him these days.
Seems so many people in this day and age still can't get past the forest/trees quandary he's so good at explaining.  :-\
