I continue to have my Docs list flooded with Chinese documents that I neither understand or want. I cannot contact the owner to ask them to remove me from their shared document collection. For as fantastic and innovative as Google is, I have yet to receive a satisfactory answer as to why my personal documents have to be flooded by some stranger's documents in my own account.

<<How do I removed myself from an unwanted shared document collection?>> Excellent question, and in practice, the way that GDocs has arranged sharing, there is nothing that you can do about it. I mean, if you could read the Docs and they contained illegal material and come from a US site and you could involve the FBI and all of this were worth your time then maybe with a year's effort or so it could be made to stop. Other than that, consider it a feature of the GDocs sharing system; that appears to be how it is considered from the GDocs side. For other features of the GDocs sharing system I may point to [1]. The present issue is also noted under the heading "Unwanted or otherwise surprising shares" in [2]. Your earlier post [3] is one of ones cited there.
