Google has this rule about not being evil, and apparently they take it seriously.

Google has worried me here and there about turning their back on their core philosophy, but this news make me very glad to be wrong. Go Google!

Let me translate:

Google : We want to have a Chinese google.
China : Well our law says you have to filter out certain stuff, if you do that, you may operate in China.
Google : Ok, fair enough-your country, your laws...

Later!..

Google : Ok China, listen up, we'll obey your laws, but only if you actually have them. We won't just let you change the rules without telling us, and we certainly won't let you break your own rules when dealing with us.
Hello!

And, "One thing there's no getting by—
I've been a wicked girl," said I;
"But if I can't be sorry, why,
I might as well be glad!"

Feh, I'll be impressed when something actually happens.

Seems like they're aiming to be kicked out.

I stopped being friends with China when they came over to my place and we were totally playing Ninja Turtles and it was all cool, but then after they left, some of my best dudes were missing. I know China stole them, I want those back!
