This is unreasonable, beyond the pale by miles, and perhaps I'm just ticked at the moment, but I don't think it's a positive thing that Linux Mint (and other F/OSS groups) allow this intrusion to continue. More than anything, I'm ticked, because this is the account I've had for years (since I met my fiancee), so it has sentimental value beyond Google's need to harass it's users.

if you want to punish the mighty Goog, then you might actually consider using LM branded Goog search ... MORE. They have to pay LM summin probably whenever a sponsored link is clicked. Thereby taking money out of Goog's pocket.
