Google Nonlisting, Hiding, or Decimation Of Links

some of numberless abuses by Google
Google Nonlisting, Hiding, or Decimation Of Links

One day after criticizing Google's partner Wikipedia on this forum for its
prowar bias, Google listing of links for the author already truncated to 70,000
links was further decimated to 5600. Among the remaining 5600 links antiRomney
articles were prominently featured. In general, antiwar, environment, prison
rights, minority rights, animal rights, socialist activists and poets find their links are not
fairly reflected, are hidden or eliminated altogether from lists. Vegetarians
and vegans who request vegetarian restaurant listings in a certain city might
find a steakhouse prominently featured as first in the list. Those who ask
for the number of casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan find 2009 or 2005 articles
listed first. There is a matrix of warmonger media which includes
Google, Wikipedia, and Facebook, a social network which eliminated 850,000 Boycott BP page
members. Google was
founded by Sergei Brin now a billionaire, whose work at Stanford was funded by
your tax dollars funneled through the CIA. Google Earth cooperates with the US military
and in addition spies on people around the world, though the European Union has
filed lawsuits. One NYC poet said that Google Earth did not stop at building walls
but went through her window.

violating the California Invasion of Privacy Act. The law protects citizens'

Google's attempted global monopoly of web links

Google gives prominent placement to fast food, butcher and drug company funded
Richard Berman's links.


•"Google will be bound not to seek court orders against competitors' use of
certain "standard-essential patents" it owns."
•"Google has accepted certain limits on the terms it can require programmers to
accept in order to have their software access to Google's advertising database."
•"Google has promised to allow website publishers to opt out of having their
content included in Google's specialized pages without opting out of having
their content listed in Google's main web search."

The following comment was placed on http://indymedia.org.uk

It was a reply to http://indymedia.org.uk/en/2012/12/505089.html

I am glad this issue has been raised. I have run an independent news website for
the past 12 years.

The site includes a free links listing service where visitors can post their
own links to their websites in a comprehensive links directory.

I stipulate that these links are free, are placed by their respective owners,
and all links automatically include the tag 'rel="nofollow"' as requested and
required by Google. Regardless, this has not stopped Google from threatening
people who place links on my pages.

Over the past year I have received emails from persons requesting removal of
their link from my pages as they had been 'penalised' by Google.

Google appears to consider that only Google or affiliate search engines are
'authorised' to maintain a directory of website listings and links and anyone
else attempting to provide a free links service is doing something wrong.

If there is someone out their with legal standing who would like to pursue this
illegal activity in a court of law then I have all the required evidence for
such a case.

Google spies on the whole world through Google Earth. One NY
resident looked up her apartment building and saw that Google
Earth was allowing people to peer into her window. The EU has sued
and won over this privacy violation but it continues elsewhere.

After a press release, Google partially restored the poet activist links but allowed access to only 360
of the 70,000 it noted.
