people go download the Google Toolbar and they see a thing are on there that says "NEW" so they click it and it takes them to to the google FAH FAQ and installs the client and what not and there you go! no need to advertise on the page the toolbar did it itself and many chose to help out.

yeah, the general stance is to just view google as default II not as a team, since their users do not know each other and have no basis/forum.

So what happens if google decides to host a forum for where they can actually get together??? Hehe then it'll be hard to just consider them a default team.
