google running some sort of anti-spam software thats not keeping up with incoming traffic

I all too often get the 'you look like a hacker/virus spreader/spammer so we won't let you in' message, or the 'search not possible' message.

It's all to do with Etisalat's proxy I read.

I'll give it a go and see what happens.

Back to this AAAAaaagggggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

We're sorry...
... but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.

We'll restore your access as quickly as possible, so try again soon. In the meantime, if you suspect that your computer or network has been infected, you might want to run a virus checker or spyware remover to make sure that your systems are free of viruses and other spurious software.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope we'll see you again on Google.

The ISP system that Etisalat has adopted is to blame for it. Every internet user is suppose to have a unique ISP number which tracks the user...since Etisalat wants total control over its users..all users have the same ISP provided by Etisalat...so google thinks that 100's of people from the same ISP are trying to search something...so it shows you the msg..that its a virus or a spyware...Etisalat is to blame for this...not Google.

True. I've never had the problem before, only since I came to Dubai and Etisalat was involved.

That's because etisalat is a piece of shit.

This is one of the few problems you'll have dealing with those fucking retards. Sorry for language, but I hold a grudge against Etisalat, having lived in Dubai for 15 years, I can't think of another company, individual or anyone else that manages to piss me off more.

I covered this issue on my blog

Here in Australia, I have not seen the verification screen ONCE. It is Etisalat causing this problem, if the press confront them about it, they will of course deny it, but that is false, the system Etisalat uses causes this to happen.

FUCK YOU ETISALAT.

actually, now is probably a good time to give Windows Live search a good look at and test it out
