Britannica Goes After Wikipedia and Google

SmileyBen Re:FACTS, not "truth". (385 comments)

Erm, but isn't the fact that Wikipedia actually is a pretty good source for very many things people are searching for on Google important? That's the difference between it and other linkfarms - I (as I'm sure is the case with many others) am very frequently happy to follow a link to Wikipedia, where I find the information I'm looking for. The same isn't true for other, lazier sites.

And isn't Google's aim to get you to the information you're looking for?

The Only Way Microsoft Can Die is by Suicide

SmileyBen Re:Principles? (1002 comments)

Um, now that's just bordering on pathetic. With 2 billion dollars you could save millions of lives, and yet you wouldn't kill innocent people to allow this, just because it would mean blood on your hand? ;-)
