old lady using GoogleThis is pretty funny, a thread at the Google Web Search Help forums has an older lady telling Google that she is no longer allowed to use Google search because she is blocked.

Why was she blocked? Google blocked her because she is doing automated queries.

She wrote:

i am a 64 year old housewife who is being accused of using automated search procedures on a delapidated compaq hewellet packard discarded business laptop from the 2008 period.

Clearly this is a case of her router being open to the public or having some malware on her computer. There is no way this person is searching at automated computer speeds.

That being said, I find it funny that she went on here to tell Google off.

I guess she may switch to Bing?

I also know most 64 year olds do not look as old as the picture I used.
