"but, but.. Apple started it!!" Well, boohoo. If your sister annoys you and you break her arm as a result, you're still doing wrong.

Why wouldn't they? Because they're "Google"?

bbqb Proxy wars (342 comments)

It's funny how slashdotters always point out how Google doesn't sue for patent issues, but conveniently don't mention how they're having these proxy wars via other companies. Just like all the other companies.

.XXX Domain Registrations Begins

bbqb Re:I am all for it. (140 comments)

Do you honestly think Google will avoid indexing the .xxx TLD and miss out on all of that ad revenue?

Miss out on what ad revenue? Advertising porn in AdWords is against terms. The point is, if competitor sites come up in the safe search and yours doesn't, you lose those visitors. Users explicitly need to turn off safe search to see your results. They won't do that if they find competitor sites within the normal results. This means no site owner will do that, regardless if it helps work places or schools filter it better. They don't care about that, they care about visitors.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i

  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
