brixton, your campaign against Google, your verbal abuse about them (now removed), your all-in-capitals posts (now removed), and your continued vendetta don't help the discussion. They just mark you out as someone with a grudge who's trying to wage a one man war. What your son's college has done won't even register as a blip at the 'plex. If your suggestion is that it is evidence of a mass movement away from Google you couldn't be more wrong. Have a look at Hitwise data. And if they have problems with there (sic) capacity servers (sic) how come they're devoting processing power to updating the directory? So, do yourself a favour, find another war.
