Google is Sorry.

Google is sorry. This message says so.
For the third time today, I’ve gotten an error message from Google telling me that my query is suspicious–perhaps eminating from spyware or a virus. It is forcing me to validate that the search is authentic through a simple random character display and dialog box.
What’s peculiar is that all three of my searches were fairly innocuous: one was for a Compaq server model number, another for movie listings, and a third for a piece of software.
If this is to be the trend, the positive attributes that made Google #1 (simplicity, speed, etc.) will quickly reverse.
