Hey, you could advertise in that thread without feeling too guilty.

Last week, reddit sniffed out my Google profile, made me a new account with a randomly generated username, and logged me in, all 100% automatically. Zero input from me. And it keeps doing it. gfys, reddit.

Done and done.

Maybe we'll get another European!

Of course that's pretty much how Google Plus got its numbers, right?

Basically, except there was much more fanfare/transparency, and G+ wasn't already a massively established network.
