    ..If you're interested PM me your e-mail address and I'll send out an invite.

    For those who have no idea what Google+ is, it's Google's answer to Facebook, with much better controls on privacy and who sees what, as well as not seeing users merely as veritable troves of data to mine and sell, etc. etc.

    If you're interested, act quick, Google opens invites in short windows, so they could get closed at any time.

    At this moment, the Google+ start page says, "Already invited? We've temporarily exceeded our capacity. Please try again soon." But I'm still interested in trying. Facebook is this close to becoming not cool. Thank you for offering. I'll send you my email address.

    Yeah that's the default "we're only letting you in if you've been invited by an existing user" message. Invite sent.

    hmmm privacy. Why should I send my e-mail adress? Now that is realy unsave to do.

    Not sure what this topic is about, but use Scroogle for privacy.

    Because that is how invites are done. I applaud your concern for safety/privacy, but PMing me your e-mail address isn't going to get you anything nasty, I'm not that kind of person. Besides, you can always create a temporary e-mail address for the invite, then use the open invites to invite yourself with your real e-mail address. :)
