Did Google Groups suddenly move to requiring a Google login to read mailing list histories? wtf wtf wtf
@cwebber yep. I've had issues interacting with various FOSS projects because of it.
@cwebber they've been doing that for at least half a decade; it is soooooo bad
@technomancy It's new to several mailing lists I read, and confirmed by some other mailing list owners that they're hitting it for the first time too
@cwebber I remember thinking "this is the last straw; I'm never using google groups again" when it happened to me, and I haven't since 2014 or so, but it could be they were enforcing it inconsistently or something.
@cwebber noooooooooo! I hope this is a mistake that they fix quickly
@cwebber I just realized that as well. That is just wrong.
