If someone asked me to pick two international entities that I don’t trust in the least, at the top of the list would have to be the United Nations. I’d be hard pressed to find a good second choice that obvious, but I would probably settle for Google, which I have long called “the Chinese Opressors’ Search Portal.”
Well, now they’ve cinched that second place, by playing footsie with the first-place finisher.
Go. Read. Be disgusted that any so-called “American” company would engage in such chicanery. And understand why I trust no company on the internet.
2/20/08: And this pales beside the actions of the California Federal District Court which has ordered the internet registrar to de-list their domain and park it until further notice. Significant First Amendment problems with that, obviously. Idiot judge.
