Re: WAY FUCKING OT: apology about getting my facts wrong.
What Google DID do in China, however, was agree to censor their search
results to be in line with official government policy. So people searching
for info on, say, any topic that the government doesn't want the people
knowning about do not show up in Google results if you search from within
While not as bad as giving up dissidents, they're definitely in bed with
Big Brother. FWIW.

"Aw, darn it Rick. I hate to be an anorak -- well, at least in this
particular case -- because I somewhat dislike the Google guys too. They
really can be arrogant pr*cks. However, in the interest of accuracy in
reporting: that was Yahoo! (not Google) that gave up the dissident
journalist's IP addresses."
