And Google should finally get rid of the yellow "o" in their logo, the contrast is definitely not sufficient…

Do you honestly believe sending a message along the lines of a sarcastic "Nice way to …" or ""… make a real commitment or just talk the talk" will do anybody any good? One thing is for sure - it would turn me away.You are beating up people who are already in the process of doing the right thing. Are they 100% there? Not yet, of course. Is the contrast for the gray text at the bottom too low? Absolutely! Just tell Google about it, and I am sure they'll fix it in the foreseeability future.

In general: I would try to be part of a solution, and not part of a problem!
