Yep. My response was "FUCK NO!!", and yes they kept pestering me for months. I never gave them a damn thing.
Lucky you, they just terminated my G+ account after a couple weeks of pestering (and at the time you could not use a lot of services without G+), but now G+ is dead, and Vic Gundotra has been fired while I'm still alive and I still have my job.
[she] needs access to Quicken/QuickBooks and others tools (MS Excel) that are pretty much industry standard for her. It would be great to have those all ported to Linux,

Yes, more open source copycatting proprietary software as "hack" looks like a direct ripoff of Monaco or Menlo fonts found in OS X. How did they get past the copyright lawyers? Although I read somewhere on slashdot that fonts are not copyrightable in the US.
Menlo is based upon the Open Source font Bitstream Vera and the public domain font Deja Vu (info embedded inside the font itself).
