I still think the fact that the "report bug or broken website" function having a defaultly checked "send screenshot" box the bottom is presumptuous of Google!

[put at-character here]Drew: Why? You're sending Google the address anyways. What's wrong with sending a picture of only the broken page in question?The only potential violation I can imagine is if the image shows a user ID or email address of yours, but that's a marginal case.

Mysterius, such a screenshot could include e.g. a full email message shown on the screen. Having the checkbox unchecked by default would prevent users from sending this without fully reading through the option box...
