Good to know what I can control. We get entirely too much spam and seek to avoid it without having to have to waste the gift of time dealing with it ourselves. Anything Google can do to aid in this effort will create happiness for your customers (like me and my Family) will enhance business for Google! LET's DO THIS!!! BE OUR FAVORITE GOOGLE. We need you to succeed. APPLE and MICROSOFT and FACEBOOK irritate me greatly but are currently a necessary dysfunctional part of my FAMILY.
