I've decided to blog about this odd message I received while browsing Google.

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen?
In order for me to continue browsing I had to enter captcha codes. It looks like this block happened because I was searching terms on Google much faster then average users. Google suspects I am malicious software or a script auto submitting queries.
This traffic may have been sent by malicious software, a browser plug-in, or a script that sends automated requests.
It appears I violated 'Google Terms of Service' under section 'Using our Services' on the first paragraph:
Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected"misconduct.
To make the captcha go away I simply stopped submitting queries so quickly. I feel a little bit jaded since I'm not a malicious script, I'm just energetic, but what the hey.
