Has anything changed from the result of Google Bashing? Nope.
Google, a company that once used to be the "darling" of the 'net, has gradually been exposed by your so-called Google Bashers for what it really is : a vicious monopoly, grabbing whatever may be grabbed, amassing a fortune to the detriment of everybody else, by employing methods of dubious legitimacy and certainly dubious ethics.
Awareness that did not exist 5 years ago.
At exactly the same time that some rather brave souls (much ridiculed most of the time, as also today by you) were working to expose reality, others, in parallel activity, were trying cowardly & slimily to appease the monster, in effect begging for their lives.
What have the results been of their cowardly behaviour during the past 5 years? None. The monster has eaten them alive.
“All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”
- Arthur Schopenhauer
I am not against the currently proposed effort, as it cannot do any more harm - the situation is already bad. I am just urging that reality should not be forgotten or ignored.
