And this kind of answer is why I've had it with this forum. There's just no point anymore. Every single discussion devolves into Google is evil. I don't have time for Google is evil. I don't care if Google is evil. I have a business to run and mouths to feed.
The problem with that comment netmeg, is that some of us make our living with our images..which we can't when Google do this stuff..and it isn't OK for you to say that we should keep quiet because you making money doesn't depend on you selling or making images..
We all have businesses to run, bills to pay and mouths to feed..
I would n't tell you that you were wrong for posting about Google acting unethically or illegally if my business was not going to be affected and yours was by what they were doing..
Your post is saying that because the 800 lb bully is necessary for your business..the rest of us should shut up and be bullied quietly..or at least not mention what is going on..just in case the bully stops being nice to you..
I don't depend 100% on Google for my businesses..but your wanting the rest of us to stay quite and pretend that Google is still the webmasters friend..( when they clearly are not ) makes it seem like in spite of posts to the contrary..possibly your business does depend very heavily upon Google..and maybe you don't want people telling the truth and rocking the boat for you..
If nobody cared what or who was good or evil as long as they got a piece of the money that was being made..we'd just as well all sell crack and traffic women and kids..that is where "I don't care if ******* is evil.I have a business to run and mouths to feed" leads..
******* could be Google, could be the triads, could be organised crime, could be anything..as long as they make money and one gets the crumbs.. hey, if evil or illegal doesn't matter, and only money does..Once you don't care if someone else is getting screwed as long as you are making money..and you'd like them to stay quiet about it..:(
