    These days, you don't have to do anything "bad" to get sued. People sue just because they have a perception that they have been misled or simply misunderstood what they were getting into with a beta release like Buzz was. Companies like Google may settle in these cases simply to reduce legal costs, or to project a public-friendly image and short-circuit any bad press the case is generating. Look at all the kerfuffle caused by Street View and such. Google's got deep pockets, and there will always be some ambulance-chasing legal slimeball who figures they can profit from any minor mistakes they (Google et al) make.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Some of you say mistakes, some of us say "being paid by the government to tie as many MAC addresses to physical addresses as possible".

I get spam, because I have a couple of spamtrap accounts which I use to register on websites, etc, and I have those forwarded to my main account. It almost all gets caught in the spam filter, though, and I only see the occasional spam message, very seldom.
    I get spam messages 2, 3, 4 times a week that the gmail filter catches and I delete.
    Since it only comes on one gmail account of mine it must mean that that email address was gotten by using something other than the buzz!!!
