I wanted to google for a problem I'm having with a phpBB2 forum. I wanted to adjust the google preferences to give me more than 10 results on a page, unfiltered. This is the answer google gave me after saving my prefs:
We're sorry... ... but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now. We'll restore your access as quickly as possible, so try again soon.Why, in the name of @#$%, do they allow you to set preferences they will not honour? Either do as I instruct of don't give me the option. Twats.
