    What is it with you and Google? I also hate that they block the warez sites. But it is there search engine. They can do what ever they want. They are helping people who don't know where they are going.

    Anyways back to topic. You can try contacting them through email.

    I like it. I've started using a lot of the Live stuff.

    I threw a temp site up and transfered a domain to office live for playing. just the front page is edited. the rest is just boilerplate stuff but so far I like live.com a lot.

    Most of the time when you get that error it is because some computer within your ip range (the actual term slips my mind right now) is attempting to DDoS google and they simply block the range of ip's to stop it. So it may not be you, but it could be a computer in your ip range. It takes a lot to get google to do that though from what I have experienced.

    So, for example, if your ip is 67.234.11.23 (outside ip from your isp) and your neighbor is 67.234.12.187 (their outside ip) and their computer is infected and attacking google then google may block 67.234.xxx.xxx

    We don't know but apparently you are the problem.

    Well, I was only using that for an example.

    But being senior citizens it could be possible that one of them has a computer and opened an email that they didnt know what it was (you know, the cute santa screensaver) and ended up being a virus/spyware and is causing the problem.

    try using a proxy and see if that helps you.

    But what's with you and Google? You seem to hate their every move, and post critisizing Google more often than they hit the news

    May I suggest that you stop using Google? Could save you some emotional turmoil?

    I have had that error pop up before, but it made me type in numbers off of an image.

    Wow, evil Google!

    I have never had any problems with google, thank god. That live.com link looks a lot like google, what's wrong with using that?

    If your desperate, i think you could try using that google backwards site.. still just as good except the wrong way round
