We are Google employees. Google must drop Dragonfly.

From the linkOur opposition to Dragonfly is not about China: we object to technologies that aid the powerful in oppressing the vulnerable, wherever they may be. The Chinese government certainly isn’t alone in its readiness to stifle freedom of expression, and to use surveillance to repress dissent.

They were extracting DNA from the stamps, then selling it to mad scientists to make little homunculuses.

It'll be a very hard habit to break, but it's finally time for me to give up google. Their search has finally become as ad-infested, functionally-retarded, and product-biased as the fly-by-night operations they displaced ten years ago. It finds nothing obscure, few things I'm really looking for, and mostly just things they were paid to show me. Ask Jeeves was better.

They've run out of goodwill, ideas, and promises to break. I've run out of patience and apathy. I'm sure they'll miss me. Not.

Duck Duck Go doesn't have the commercial noise but kind of sucks results wise. It'll do.

There's also Startpage, Searx.me, and Qwant. I just have them all in my settings and change the default every now and again. And if I'm looking for something really hard to find, I can just search them all.
