Google Fires Back About Search Engine Spam

stuckinphp Re:Can Google afford to stop spam? (270 comments)

Blekko won't work

There is one other thing in this world that search engines take care of other than advertising. Do that right, and you win a whole load of market share relatively easily.

The funny thing is, Blekko is doing a hell of a lot better than Google is in this regard. Links NSFW.

These Slashtag things aren't a new idea. Just a new name to the tagging system of old. Applying it to a search engine and mashing it with twitter @'s and facebook Likes isn't even that innovative, at least not something we didn't see coming. The fact is Google is too busy trying to take over the social aspect of the internet instead of simply integrating with the existing systems in place. They probably dropped the ball on this one and are starting to look a lot more like Microsoft these days.

People in power with all the information in the world are control freaks. Whuwuldathunkit. News at 11 I guess.

Bufferbloat — the Submarine That's Sinking the Net

stuckinphp And here I was... (525 comments)

Can bufferbloat be fixed before the Internet and 3G networks become nearly unusable for interactive apps?

And here I was wondering when 3G networks would become usable for interactive apps.

UK Banks Attempt To Censor Academic Publication

stuckinphp Re:Good. (162 comments)

When they wrote the law, the system was presumed to be bulletproof, thus allowing the banks to pass on all liability to the customer.

The law needs to be re-written.

You mean consumer.

Recording the Police

stuckinphp Re:Well then, CHANGE the law. (515 comments)

I'd love to see a law where it was likewise illegal for any public employee to LIE during any interactions with the public.

Finally, cops will actually have to answer the question "Are you a cop?" truthfully.

This presupposes that there is never a reason for a cop to go undercover.

In a world where politicians cannot lie. I don't think we would even need police let alone undercover operations.

Recording the Police

stuckinphp Re:I agree in general, but I do understand (515 comments)

Apples and oranges much son?

I think it is quite reasonable to record your employees every movement if you're going to give them guns clubs and the right to beat people.

Recording me writing software... not so much.

Recording the Police

stuckinphp Re:Rule of Law (515 comments)

"But that doesn't stop perps who get their necks stepped on from shouting "police brutality!" even though they deserve it."

That mentality is the problem, why did you go and fuck up your informative post with this dribble?

Mob-Sourcing — the Prejudice of Crowds

stuckinphp Re:Clearly (178 comments)

You know what I actually found this /. post interesting and relevant.. too scared to load zdnet again though. So I took the time of your post "Tuesday November 09, @06:10PM". And I found this little gem in YFA's -

"After this, Apple users on Slashdot will defend Steve Jobs. They'll state this can happen on any operating system, and that it is not Apple's responsibility. Then they're say how they are immune to viruses. They'll rejoice when they get their new version of Safari, which is limited to Apple's pre-approved sites.

Then their call will cut out, their screen will break, and their data will disappear. Steve Jobs will tell them that they are "holding it wrong". Apple fans will then bend over and take this abuse, at a personal cost of $4000."

Clearly here we totally think as a group and have exactly the same position on all things from hardware to software. Oh and we respect each other greatly.

Torrent-Only Movie Denied IMDb Listing

stuckinphp Re:Your definition of movie may vary... (207 comments)

From the FTA: “There is no official deal in place to make that happen, as it isn’t controlled by a ‘distributor’ as such. The only conclusion we can reach is that in the absence of a ‘proper’ distributor, they won’t list us.”

I dunno why he gave such a lame geek answer like "the sky is falling you're retarded". Should have just sent him an email with the distribution info:

DuckDuckGo Search Engine Erects Tor Hidden Service

stuckinphp Re:Fail. (87 comments)

It's only a security threat if you can't trust the site that the programs are originating from. Sure, this search engine *may* be able to dump a tracking code into their output and therefore break the TOR privacy[1], but you have to ask how likely to happen is this? And my answer: very unlikely.

Please. If you do not understand the fucking problem. Do the world a favor and shut the fuck up.

Firefox/Chrome Google Privacy Leak

stuckinphp stuckinphp writes  |  more than 4 years ago

stuckinphp (1598797) writes "Firefox/Chrome phone home to Google with an incriminating cookie that can be linked to your IP. The cookie contains a user ID and a machine ID which is used for updating safe browsing, this can be matched to an IP and therefore you. Google paranoia sure, but Google will have to pass this information over if a court order warrants them to. — Is not sending the version number enough?"
