How nice, Google is allowing you to opt out of having your wireless access point (read: your wireless router) included in their Google Location Server (read: their giant location database). All you have to do is append “_nomap.” to the end of your SSID.

That’s great — 99% of the people who will want to do this will have absolutely no idea what any of the above paragraph means. 

I mean, this entire post is a joke, right?

Please tell me this is a joke.
