Comment Promote Compassion, Instead! (Score 1) 449

I recommend they (and all of us):
1. promote awareness of the suffering and needs of others, and
2. promote compassion, kindness, consideration, gratitude and charity,
3. promote awareness of own behavior, the outcomes of our own actions.

Comment Multi-Algorithm? (Score 1) 126

Google has had a number of algorithms to rank search results over the years. Some people liked some better than others. Why not have one default algorithm, but also have alternate algorithms (including one that takes into account +1 data) as part of their Advanced Search options? That way I can try Algorithm #2 or 3 if Algorithm #1 isn't giving the results I want.
