And you know what? It's inexcusable. And anyone that argues differently, especially under the "you can't complain about free tools" is a fucking idiot. I pay for all these services with all the personal information I offer to Google which they then use to make beaucoup dollars in selling their ads. I pay for all of this. And it's a deal I entered willingly, when the services worked well enough to warrant me opting in and helping up Google's profit margin. But lately they seem to have forgotten who butters their bread.
Google, your motto used to be "Don't be evil," but nowadays I'd settle for your motto being "Don't suck."
