no offence incredibill, but this is nonsense.
No at all.
Everyone claims Google has too much power, no respect for people's privacy, complain complain complain, yet the answer to removing that power is as simple as the 2 line solution I provided above.
Even the very large publications that complain Google profits off their backs and does nothing but write slash pieces like Fortune did, doesn't have the intestinal fortitude to pull the robots.txt plug.
Give that power to Yahoo and Bing, then you'll have a new demon to deal with :)
half the reason they put up benefits and pensions is so people feel duty bound to vote them in again, in case the other party takes it away.
Well considering that was my sideways point about AdSense being webmaster welfare, yet the webmasters don't feel duty bound or loyal to AdSense/Google whatsoever even after making all that free money.
Sing their praises until it turns sour and then run them out on a rail.
