I agree, thanks for the heads up, then again, I see an assault on webmasters by Google with all these new "innovations" without early documentation which results in a confusion on forward procedures as in "we'll keep chipping away until everyone has no clue and we can do what we want to do... and then let TIME OF ACCEPTANCE be our defense if anyone makes a stink."
Then again, I don't give Google an inch more than is appropriate and that only grudgingly. Currently growing other options, and have been for the last six years.
And have a number of Google IPs banned in .htaccess for bad behavior and will maintain as well. There's "free" and there's "free ride" but nobody makes a free ride on me unless I get something back... and recently that hasn't been working, regardless of all the "hope and change" with me hoping and G making all the changes. (sigh)
