Some genius out there needs to create a web page that lists all of the links Google, et al, remove from their search responses. Make it a wiki so that the reasons for their requested removal can be documented, discussed, and analyzed.
It'll then be interesting to see the loop build as these pages get their search engine removal requests ... and a new wiki-page goes up .... get's listed ... gets a removal request ... lather...rinse...repeat....ad infinitum!
As far back as kindergarten (in the '70s) police came to our school to teach us bike safety, including hand signals when riding on roads.
1. Don't ride on sidewalk. (It has 'walk' right in the name!) 2. Always ride on the right, with the flow of traffic. 3. Always ride single file. 4. Always use your left hand (ONLY!) to signal. ---- right turn = left arm out, 90-deg elbow bend, hand up, palm forward ---- left turn = left arm straight out, palm forward ---- stop/brake = left arm out, 90-deg elbow bend, hand down, palm backward.
It's pretty idiotic to use the lights to signal a left turn, when the arm movement signals a right.
I would have loved to see an Amendment to the Bill that declared East Texas ineligible for making any legal decisions on patents. They waste everyone's time with the morons they have there deciding these cases.
There are plenty of reasons not to trust the NSA, but worrying about their own employees isn't one of them. Fact is, every business suffers from some sort of 'loss', be it information or merchandise, be it for personal gain or industrial espionage. It is management's duty to prevent that loss.
How the management works to prevent loss, and what they do when it's discovered, are quite different stories than the mere fact they are working to prevent it.
