    Nothing? Come now...

    It manipulates the way we receive information in ways we aren't even aware of. Plus its history involving China is nothing to be proud of.

    But I still think that comparing it to Hitler is not only unwarranted, it is also offensive.

    Well it's just an expression people use. Yes it's obviously an exaggeration. The bottom line is Google's little "do no evil" thing is laughable.

    But still, it is a bit unnecessary to throw out Holocaust references like candy...that was a very tragic event in the lives of many people, and comparing something as petty as Google to it just seems so unnecessary...

    I wasn't referencing the Holocaust, I never even mentioned the Holocaust, my comparison of Google to Hitler is that Google as a company has practices that are a lot like that of a ruthless dictator (ala Hitler), and the way they mostly cater their services to benefit their own wants and needs as opposed to the people it's supposed to serve is similar to that of Fascism (Nazis).

    I'm not the only one out there who feels this way about Google, it's just I'm the only HERE (at MC) who apparently does.

    I do believe you are entitled to your own opinion about Google, however I just don't think that using Hitler as an example is the best way to do it.

    Fine, but you don't have to say it every single time someone mentions google :/

    Should I compare them to Castro instead?

    No, we all know how you feel about google and there is no need to bring up your hatred every single time someone mentions it. All Hubert did was ask a question and you jump down his throat.

    Or Napoleon perhaps?

    I didn't jump down his throat, I just answered his question in a facetous manner.

    Thing is some of Google's problems aren't petty (again its relationship with China). Yes the Hitler expression is an exaggeration but it's only an expression, no different from saying "something really bad."

    But if it isn't called for...all I did was ask a question regarding Google Analytics, and then suddenly we all spaz out about Google's problems?

    A lot of people have a problem with the company; it's been a long time brewing and it won't end soon. I can understand feeling frustrated because you were just asking a question but don't take it personally. :)

    Hubert Well-Known Member

    I'm not taking it personally or anything, I'm just saying that it was uncalled for to suddenly compare Google to Hitler when someone mentions the word...

    I can see both sides; I probably can't be much help here, lol.

    Well, it's kind of like how Newsie goes into her "Win-doze" mini-rants any time the subject of Microsoft is brought up in a discussion... I guess some people are just more opinionated than others... it's like that old quote from Don Henley, "I'm not scary, I'm just opinionated." Of course, I always put that quote in reverse whenever it comes to Nancy Gracy: she's not opinionated, she's just scary.

    I like his music (Eagles and solo), but his "opinionated" is this man's "whiny". "Dirty Laundry", "Johnny Can't Read", "The Boys Of Summer", "All She Wants To Do Is Dance", I could go on with all his musical complaints.

    And don't think she's escaped my wrath. I've yelled at her about that, too. So don't feel like I'm picking on you personally :p

    So it just takes 42 pages for Godwin's law to kick in?
