Yeah, worst hack ever. The overlap between people who have hidden SSIDs and those that don't want to be in googles mapping database is probably 100%, they should just use that.
Really, Google? THIS is your solution? How about asking those people that don't mind being scanned and catalogued simply change their SSIDs to include "_I Welcome our Robotic overlords-scan away!" and ignore the rest of us.
Google is really starting to creep me out-this nonsense, then the recent "personalized search" thing. It's disappointing-so many great tools (I still like G+ better than FB and I love Gmail), but the don't be evil mantra has not only ceased to be in effect but is rapidly becoming ironic.
