I didn't insinuate it: I said it out loud. Whether it's an explicit decision
by Google or just an emergent effect is moot. Google are clearly quite happy
with this state of affairs otherwise they'd do something about it.

It is not exactly difficult to find forms to fill in at Google. They *love*
their forms. All attempts at getting support are deflected by a request to
fill in a form. Nothing useful happens upon filling in a Google support
form, of course. An auto-ack at best, then tumbleweed.

Franz Kafka could have written a whole shelf of novels about Google.
