An Early Look At Civilization V

Green Monkey Re:Both Good and Bad (286 comments)

Religon's biggest long-term effect in the CIV4 was just to give AI Civ's one more thing to get pissed off at you about. There was no winning with it either, as no matter which you picked, you'd tick somebody off.

So it's just like real life, then.

Google caught editing PageRank results

Green Monkey Green Monkey writes  |  more than 7 years ago

Green Monkey (152750) writes "Google has been caught manually editing the PageRank of certain pages to 0, causing them to vanish from Google search results. For example, what was last week Google's #2 result on the Megan Meyer affair has now vanished completely from search results. It's obvious that this is due to direct interference from Google — these are Wiki-based articles where the main article has vanished and yet the Talk page still appears in the results. More details at Digg story, as well."

Green Monkey writes "More social network "false positives": LiveJournal has been permanently suspending accounts suspected of promoting incest — except that many of them were communities for survivors of abuse and people discussing Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita. Even after being related to the problem, LiveJournal apparently refuses to reinstate the banned accounts. LiveJournal's official news blog has filled up with hundreds of complaints protesting the decision, so we could have another Digg-style user rebellion brewing."
