i agree with you. but have in mind that google does the same with google groups. it used to be open. now it's locked. everything is a mess, google on the other hand loses revenue lately and they have become very greedy.
Huston we have a problem with closed networks. Google cannot crawl, index and sell ads.
If Google is the Disneyland of the whole internet why the f*ck I cannot access google/groups without a google account?

She says she has called Dell to request Windows instead however was talked out of it. Her current claim is that she was unaware that she couldn't install her Verizon online disk to access the Internet, nor could she use Microsoft Word to type up her papers."
