Why does this thread feel like a PR piece for Gorg?!
Ah yes, thank Brett for adding much needed REALITY to the original puff piece.
When it comes to Google, it's very trendy today to be cynical - even The Onion [theonion.com] is in the mood.
It's called satire. [en.wikipedia.org]
(In satire, human or individual vices, follies, abuses, or shortcomings are held up to censure by means of ridicule, derision, burlesque, irony, or other methods, ideally with the intent to bring about improvement- emphasis mine.)
And its usually reserved for EDUCATING the masses or subject matter when they are SO blinded by propaganda,
ie political views/politicians, they are unable to see the truth without bias.
Odd that you think it's a "trend", yes?
I tend to be "cynical" about any person/org/country that continually "spins" the truth to suit their own agenda, aren't you?!
**One might scroll down to the definition of "Juvenalian Satire [en.wikipedia.org]" to understand 2/3 of my posts. ;)
