i was not going to post again in this thread since it's become such a behemoth but i have to say, it's not a matter of agreeing with powdork, he/she has simply stated the facts. it is a misguided notion to believe that google has some kind of written policy against commerce sites. the whole point of naming the search engine "google" was to get the point across that their mission is to index "googols" of information without prejudice. now it looks like they should be named "something approaching but not quite google".
