    I agree, clearly not good at setting up a profile for someone claiming to be hired as a rep of a high tech corp like Google. Heck, I'd feel embarrassed asking for help setting up a profile, but a Google rep? :eek:

    I guess we'll know if this person is the real deal when we hear from W1zzard. ;)

    I have to see if this is really a google rep. Something just doesn't ring true here, lol.

    And I'm really a qubit. :laugh:

    Is that part of the 8th dimension? Do you know Buckaroo Bonzai? I want proof damn it! :laugh:

    If this person IS a Google rep, I bet he/she is wondering what the heck they've got themselves into by coming to planet TPU. LOL

    No, you'll find that any time someone claims to be a company rep, staff here will request you MSG W1zzard and confirm things.

    Trolls aren't the issue...outright scammers are thieves are. With most thinking that the internet is still anonymous, you'd be surprised what people are willing to try.


    So rather than worry about it, a blanket policy is kinda of in place.

    You don't have to be a company rep to post here, and if you are, your words and posts are taken as the opinion of the company your are posting for, regardless. This "policy" of affirming company reps saves not only users from being misled, but also having companies mis-represented.


    People are skeptic only because what normally goes on here isn't really of the sort of content that Google would need to have a rep for. We do not have a mobile device forum.

    But we do have manufacturer support sections.

    Yes. Only a half-wit would take something on the internet for granted without questioning its validity.

    While you are waiting with bated breath for the outcome of this tense stand-off to see if the OP is legit, go read my Friday Night Editoral on NPU and make some comments there. :)

    Yeah, cheap plug.

    Now I have to say that Natalie Portman is smokin' hot! It's something about her obviously, not downright sexuality, but rather more sophisticated beauty with a twist of honest-hearted-goodness-and-awesomeness. Natalie Portman FTW!!!! :D

    The bit about the auto GPS devices being dangerous is why I feel they should be designed so the map only shows when you're stopped.

    Anyways, if this claimed Google rep really IS legit, I think it would be his/her onus to acknowledge that had they handled their introduction to the forum properly through staff channels, the whole bit about trolling wouldn't have come up.

    Personally I can't imagine how anyone hired as rep for an outfit as integral to the internet as Google is would not understand such things. Makes you wonder how concerned those working on security (or even PR) at Google are.

    Well, still no title for our alleged "google rep". A real one could have sorted this out in 5 minutes with w1zz, so I reckon this is an epic troll.

    Hey, look how many posts there are speculating about this! I'm impressed. :respect:
