Posted on 03/15/2008 10:22:03 AM PDT by processing please hold
It has been about two weeks since I have received any google alerts concerning, islam, Nato, obama's islamic connections, islam in the US, acquiring land for islamic mosque in the US, barack obama and islam, united nations and guns, united nations and unclos When I set up a new alert about anything islamic or the un I get this: Your Google Alert request [ united nations and guns ] has been created and a verification email has been sent to.....
I'm never sent a verification email.
Doesn't surprise me you'd lose bad information about them. It also would surprise me that, since they've refused to abide by any privacy measure encouraged with other sites such as Yahoo!, that they are tracking you and tainting what you are fed.
that they are tracking you and tainting what you are fed.
That certainly makes sense. I have two words for them, the first starts with an "F" and the second word is "YOU."
You can probably work around this if you use http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/ and set up some filters for the master google news feeds. I think, maybe.
Thank you, I’ll give it a try, couldn’t hurt. :)
Scroll down to see poll question.
Site bookmarked. Thanks again.
Ninety five percent who voted thinks it is. I’m in that 95% now. Thanks for the link.
I received the verification request on an inocuous search I created the other day. I don’t know why, though.
