Re: Australian Posters, what is this Yahoo search bullshit? Have Google gone Nuclear?

Ella fan, why have you become a stooge for News Ltd? You must know that these proposed laws are mental, yet you're passionately advocating for them because you get all your talking points and opinions from News Ltd.

Re: Australian Posters, what is this Yahoo search bullshit? Have Google gone Nuclear?

Internet users will vote with their fingers.

If google is worth the effort, they will still go there, and google will still cash in on stolen IP as a result - even if it is geo-blocked for IPAs here.
