couldnt disagree with you more! its no joke! :-)
its in line with their original stated goal of being the one site that redirects to other sites for a commission. Otherwise known as affiliates. Thast what they said in the interview as they went live, they dont want their index full of sites that redirect to other sites because they can do that themsleves. After all thats the whole point of them having their own serps. If it makes money today you can bet some day down the road it will be their own links up top.
