Comment: Now Google is fucking up the internet (Score 2) 35

First they fuck up my mobile experience by putting sites they think aren't good enough for mobile to be off the radar as far a search results go. They say it is because mobile pages are better. I say bullshit. Even on my phone, 90% of the time I'd rather see a full site with columns than a fucking mobile site. Most mobile sites are shit compared to the full site, and the size of screens are more than enough to handle it. Fuck off Google and just return search results without your fucking tailoring.

Now it seems they are OK with wasting screen real estate if it is for them to put 'buy' buttons on their searches. I say again, fuck off google.

Maybe time to try yahoo or duck duck for searches.

Your argument is OK as far as it goes. But I believe the OP did make a point, while kind of vague, about asking who executes who if you execute an innocent man? It has happened more than once in the past. And we constantly see people exonerated who were convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death after a trial. So who do we execute if the trial finds that an innocent person should be executed and it happens? Do we execute the jury? The judge? The police? The prosecutor? The defense? Any of them? None of them? Why?

For what it's worth, I don't have too much of a problem doing away with someone for murder when it is absolutely for certain that they caught the real bad guy. But I don't like it dragging on for years, and I don't like it done humanely behind walls. Make it horrible and in public. That way everyone sees what's up. Out of sight out of mind need not apply here. And for me, if an innocent person is executed, find out why and execute the people responsible... but at least one of them has to be an official... even if it includes jury members. That would have made trials of blacks by all white juries in the south more entertaining. Let them wear their uniforms while swinging. It would look like putting out the bed sheets on the line.

And that was an example of a company being punished. They lost a LOT of money in terms of lost potential at least. And is likely why they are at least making an attempt to listen to their customers this time around (or the appearance thereof anyway). If they hadn't lost market share, they wouldn't have changed their behaviour.
