I’m telling Google on you…

All this will do is start people using other search engines to find what they want. Ask is saying great google do that

Funny enough, in some cases companies (like Microsoft) ask Google to have their own websites censored. I just wish Google hadn’t spotted this.

And I several times already noticed myself that Google removed sites on behalf of Microsoft, while they can still be found on Microsoft’s own search engine Bing.

I am giggling over the “Microsoft removes itself from Google” news. I wonder how far up the Google maintenance-chain that request had to go before the data-entry folks were told “DO IT!!” ha ha… of course, there were just a few servers in the world that needed replications… just a few…

As TV Cable Companies get to threaten to ‘pull the plug’ on the big networks (Time Warner and CBS have been threatening this of late, but it’s been ABC, ESPN, etc before), I can’t wait to see Search Engines threaten this. “BING will no longer respond to any search with the phrase Google or GMail or GDOCs.”

“Google will no longer respond to any request containing Microsoft, Windows. You can find out plenty about multiple-sclerosis, though…”

Just like when the film industry requested it’s own content to be removed.

Why? Because they’re stupid, that’s why! After all, this is the same industry who demands all of us to stop pirating (including those “guilty” individuals, who are actually innocent), and force a bunch of DRM down our throats, making it arguably more difficult to obey the law than to break it.
