I don't want a Google group. It's like many forums depending on the Yahoo group.

If you want to add something, you have to register with your personal details and you get a cookie. You HAVE to have a proper identification and let the cookies - and what the hell know what Google does with the cookies (don't tell me it does nothing, you'd never know - it's like when you travel to the USA, you'd get your 10 (!) fingerprints saved in a database for more than 70 years - it's not worrying about today, but data collection can be a very important tool in the future and nobody knows what the future will be and as a consequence you are very unlikely to see me in the USA even for a million $).

I am blocking all cookies except for Wine and a few others and I see that every second website I surf tries to ad me a cookie from Google. I already have cookies set by Firefox. The last thing I want is Google having the cookies set by Firefox by default + a full registration with name and address and IP to track my moves on the Internet.

So much I like forums, if I get forced to register on any Google product to write, then I will let it be - I'm not so important and it's not so important after all.
