The Register.UK: Mysterious Gmail account lockouts prompt hack fears.

You know, funny stuff's been going on. I can use my Gmail and other accounts, except for G+. I can 'like', but cannot comment. Wants me to reauthorize, update passphrases, etc. etc. Suppose I'll wait and see what fixes get pushed out for this one.

Observation.

Getting less and less inclined to post politics. Yes, important things are happening, things we need to know about. But they're covered with such maniacal fervor, and in such great numbers, it feels like all the air is being sucked out of the metacosm. And the pace! You barely have time to address one controversy, when three more pop up. Each one, met with harangues threatening to run off the rails. No paper of record seems immune, much less online news punditry. It's like the internet is having a full-on schizophrenic meltdown. The Left is exhausting themselves early and often, and that's historically never been a good sign.

The only thing I can do is focus on what I think is being ignored, adding missing context or local flavor. The major news, I know you've already seen/read. In the meantime, just try not to knee-jerk and edge-case yourselves into paranoid agoraphobia (see previous link today).
