You can spam the moronic Google Blog at

#2 Google's still sticking with its "Do No Evil" motto. Unfortunately, they've decided that criticizing China is evil.

#3 This is one reason I mourn the loss of the humble library card catalogue system. Sure it's easier to search for a book on line, but it's also easier to *disappear* a book when all you need to do is delete it from the database. With the old catalogues you needed to pull three cards out of every cabinet from every library.

I've started using this. It's good. Google is self-destructing.

#9 Yes, Besoeker, I realize you think (or whatever passes as thinking in your pathetic excuse for a notochord) we're just as bad as google until we offer to pay server storage space and bandwidth charges for you to be able to spew far-right complaints on the internet all day long.

In reality I think you're just another right-wing equivalent of all the left-wing "rage against my allowance" slackers on slashdot who haven't moved out of their parent's basements but think they're revolutionaries against the Chainey Regime.

Freedom of speech isn't free, but you can have it for 15.00 a month from typepad. If I can afford it, you can afford it. And I've never gotten sent to roadside america from there.

#11 This is dispicable. The communist Mandarins epitomize what all Internet related companies should be violently opposed to. What utter hypocrisy.

#13 And if you Google Charles Johnson's "littlegreenfootballs," anti-site material is at the top of the list. Anti-LGF sites wouldn't get 10 hits a day, unless the Google jerks were propping them. But Google wants the 300 million Arab market more than objective commentary. Yahoo shouldn't have taken $200 million from Google to settle patent claims. Yahoo should have sandbagged those predators in their infant stage.

#14 Accoona - that would be the search engine backed by Bill Clinton and the Chinese government. Not much of an alternative to Google.

#15 Various Chinese Military/Affairs Forums and websites have either been completely blocked, or are at best partially downloaded wid protracted long Long LONG L-O-N-G-G-G lead times. You can nap for 2-4 hours and nothing will change.
