Protest increases against Google Toolbar
As a follow up to Google SmartTags, we have Jeffrey Zeldman's "Protect your site from Google's new toolbar" which links to NickW's Code for Killing Google AutoLink post at Threadwatch.
So, we have SEOs and designers in agreement against the Google Toolbar. As Zeldman posts:

They get to sell targeted traffic based on the content of every web page in the world without having to resort to developing any content, running a PPC search engine, or actually doing much of anything.
