I'm a bit curious about why you think Google should be checking into a business model - and, really, what does that phrase actually mean?
The second makes me curious... What the hell is "dropboxes?" (I'm kind of fluent in criminal terminology (2 proficiency slots in Thieve's Cant.) What's that?
Also, why would they trust users or are you saying that you should flag them and they should review 'em?
I'm not actually sure why you'd expect Google (or really want, I guess) to do such things. Me? I just want them to give me search results.
I have no idea what you mean by pwning YouTube. I know what pwning is. Who's distributing malware by Google or hacking users through YouTube directly?
Are you talking about the links that people put in the description that take you off-site? I only see those when I'm hunting for copyrighted material.
The last one (I think) is "stealing your personal information." Err... They stole your information? How? They DO say they're slurping up your information and, in fact, make it part of their agreement to let you use their stuff. I'm not really sure where you're going with that one. I see them doing something I don't like (slurping up data) but they do make it pretty clear that that's what they're doing so I'm not sure that the word stealing applies. There might be something that I'm unaware of.
To the best of my knowledge, Google has no information about me that I didn't give to them. Well, there was the wireless router thing. I guess that'd count but I suspect that's not what you mean because that's long-since gone.
Then, I might be crazy, but didn't this:
My own motto these years is "Additional detailed suggestions available upon polite request, but I'm not holding my breath."
appear in another thread from earlier today? Again, I'm not sure what you're going for.
I should mention that I've been quite pissed with Google for a long time. So, I'm not asking these questions just to be obtuse. I'm actually the guy that gave up on Android and got a Windows Phone. So, I'm really not a fanboy or anything. I do use YouTube. I do have a GMail account that doesn't get used. I do, actually use their search.
A note on that last part. I use their search AND I have profile set up so that it returns personalized responses. They're pretty good and come at a price - privacy. So, I do two things... I only let Google get my information when I give it to them on that particular page. I block all Google stuff (including images and fonts) by default by means of uMatrix. So, I'm not actually being tracked with their other stuff like analytics or tag. In fact, I need to go out of my way in order to even see their CAPTCHA - it simply does not load. (That has led to some interesting periods of confusion and some frustration but I consider it worth it.)
So, yeah, I'm mostly just curious about the personal information theft. See, I know how the 'net works and I don't actually consider tracking (if that's what you're even going for) to be theft. In fact, I consider people having given consent to such when they visit some third party site that has chosen to use their analytics or whatnot. I really can't think of any data that Google might have that I didn't give away by direct actions on my part. Yes, they index comments I make. They index a site or two. I don't actually consider that theft - I consider that being them doing their job.
Oh, forgot this... It's tempting to mention that "information wants to be free." That's not really my point. My point is that you're putting stuff out there knowing that it's going to be indexed (or, something?) and that you expect them to do some vague things with words that you have a cryptic definition for. I can not actually parse what is wholesale pwning of YouTube and I'm kind of fluent in computer (even blackhat) terminology.
It's almost as if you're asking Google to exert more control and that seems rather antithetical to your signature.
Then again, asking Google to trust its users is an odd position to hold. You might be someone they can trust but then again, you might be one of those people who think "mark as spam" is a valid choice when you did, in fact, sign up to receive those emails. The sad thing is that all that does is hurt the system for everyone. This is not an accusation towards you but I'll use the "Royal You." Okay? You signed up for the email, you didn't remove the checkmark when you went through the process and being too lazy to find the unsubscribe option harms those who legitimately want the emails because it effects (or can effect) more than just your inbox.
Again, you may not do that but they've had issues with this in the past and still have issues with it today. And no, I'm certainly not defending those who really send UCE/spam. Those guys can fuck right off.
