    Doesn’t this make your profile private? Thus getting your account deleted? Please clarify.

      I think it will block only search engines and profile will continue to be public. Other people on Google plus can still see your profile.

    Google should stick to providing a search engine but instead they are spying on people and now with Google plus they are using SSL to try and hide the spy-scripts that have naff all to do with recomending pages and everything to do with spying on your every move.

    G-Plus uses a HTTPS script to load another HTTPS script that then writes to a frame and the bandwidth goes up.

    Thank god Microsoft is trying to provide tools in IE8/9 to stop google in it’s track but only because MS wanted to be Big Bro instead of Google.

    Get yourself a copy of MS-Fiddler to see whats realy going on
