Comment: complications piled on complications (Score 1) 1

Just a thought: You, or Google, or somebody, is introducing a (small) complication (altering an email address) in peoples already over-complicated lives. It makes it seem like they now have two email addresses to maintain. I understand that it is designed to make peoples lives easier in the long run but they may not see that.

Not at all. To have that happen they have to prove that you're a physical danger to yourself or somebody else. Simply being eccentric, insane, or even being a criminal sociopath who defrauds people doesn't have a chance of landing you there.

My first thought to this is: "What country do you live in? Where reality has something to do with the court system?" .\:p/.

In my country (USA), everything depends on what the definition of the word 'is' is. And the only ones qualified to even discuss the issue are lawyers. Because, of course 'the truth' is 'vastly overated'.

Money will say more in one moment than the most eloquent lover can in years.
