I'm not trying to stir up the controversy - I just thought since they'd announced the big announcement, that it might mean they've fixed the verification process. Last time I tried it couldn't handle Canadians (well we are pretty exotic!). This time it not only worked it took about 1 millisecond. In fact it was so easy I thought maybe I'd messed up....... but when I went back in it told me I was already done.
I don't feel any different. :)
