if Microsoft did something like this (which they did in the 1990s), the masses would be at the gates with pitchforks and flaming torches screaming for blood.

No they wouldn't. Some geeks would be pissed off, which they were in the 90s.

When Google behaves like Microsoft did 20 years ago... well, meh, it's Google, they can do that. What's changed?

Nothing. Many of us are pissed off at Google for ruining good products they had. My bugbear is Google Navigate, and the removal of the separate "blue arrow" navigate icon. They totally fucked it up by rolling it up into Maps and changing the interface the way they did. Even to this day I install the old Maps APK on my Android phones.

There's a difference between conquering and/or outcompeting a people and lining them up for systematic mass slaughter.

Hahahaha. So if Turkey had just driven the Armenians out of their homelands and left them to die in the desert (and only killed SOME of them), then that would've be A-OK?

It was a genocide. There may have been awful things happened to precipitate it, but it was a genocide and the record is fairly clear on this.

It would take courage for Turkey to accept this part of their past, apologize for it, and show that they are big enough to accept the bad and the good in their past. But they aren't, nationally, and these hackers are an example of that.

So when is the USA gonna 'fess up about its genocide of the native Americans?

Aren't you glad you're not getting all the government you pay for now?

Working...
