HUH? Please read this first [en.wikipedia.org...] for an overview on what antitrust is and who is subjected to it.
but do you really want to see us all subjected to the same governmental dead hand that suffocates business out in the real world?
Then tell us how we were suffocated by the breaking up of Standard Oil, At&T and actions on Microsoft and IBM?
Google LOVES the big government--when it's convenient to them.
They even love software patent law--when it's convenient to them.
It's amazing how we are used to this, but it isn't normal. You have a site for 10 years, employees and all and all of the sudden Google decides it's a bad site. Why was my site penalized? 'We can't tell you, in fact we may not even tell you if you have a penalty, but spelling might matter. Your cheating competitor might be caught too, or he might not. Trust us, we're fair, but can't tell you' Meanwhile their earnings keep increasing even as they lose market share and pseudo-Gods speak cryptically as if they are having fun torturing people that lost their livelihoods with one stroke of the keyword.
Or, you have a honest business model for years and all of the sudden Google declares it not desirable because of 'user experience.' So...how come users don't mind it when Google does it and stuffs its links on top of every search?
