I am the one missing the point?
It's like WebmasterWorld publishing, on the right hand side of the page, keywords used to access this site. If some moron searches on Google for "cien likes to play with Barbies" site:webmasterworld.com LOL!
#*$! does any of that have to do with a defamation of character suit? It isn't like that at all.
Here I will keep you on point.
In what way did Google defame this man?
Do you consider yourself to be smarter and more capable of good judgement (sic) than the court who made this ruling?
Yes I do, and the judge who gave Stella money for hot coffee in her lap... and many other judges who make bad decisions about technology they don't understand.
Maybe I am the dumb one, maybe I should look at those suggestions and take them as assertions.
Typing in "LA kings win s"
Brings up the suggestion LA kings win Stanley cup... Interesting since they have never won it.
Because of that search suggestion should I now think that the LA kings have won a Stanley cup?
No I don't. The reason?
I know it wasn't a factoid it was a search suggestion. Looking at the search results gives me the facts, the items in that drop down box are SUGGESTIONS TO SEARCH NOT ASSERTIONS! To defame someone you have to make an assertion/accusation about them.
