And then stupid google buzz comes along...

I go to my gmail page (which I don't do often, because I've got my little gmail igoogle gadget on my home page) and I see the buzz item on the left side of my screen.

So- I'm not happy... then I click it, find out I'm already following four people, and have one follower. Some Guy that I don't even know. That irritates me- So, I unfollow the people it had me following, but I can't do anything about my follower.

I keep looking around settings and what not, and I find the "turn off google buzz" on the bottom of the page. Is that enough to opt out of the whole google buzz experience?

I hate when crap gets forced on you like that...

As much as I like google, that move of automatically opting you in and following was a bad choice. Reminds me of Facebook.

For anybody that doesn't know...

It should be more visible though, I only found out today about where to turn it off.

That's funny. I checked *both* my accounts, and the only person following either one of them was my mother.

Sounds like someone's been arbitrarily clicking about...
