Google Censors on behalf of Government! Who Me Paranoid? This blog was LOCKED immediately after I posted the most recent ANTI-Bush-Cheney posts!

BEWARE: Apparently any wing-nut who disagrees with your right to free speech in the form of opinionated or political blogs on the blogger.com/blogspot.com server — specifically Repugnacon-Bush-Cheney criticism — can click the FLAG-Blog bug on your blog and google will happily begin censoring and blocking any new posts, labeling your blog as a spamblog. You'll have to wait several days (or more) before your blog gets visited by a real google human who will then email you to say:

Hello,

Your blog has been reviewed, verified, and cleared for regular use so that
it will no longer appear as potential spam. If you sign out of Blogger and
sign back in again, you should be able to post as normal. Thanks for your
patience, and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

Sincerely,
The Blogger Team

BEWARE the growing FASCIST MONOLITH that is GOOGLE.

Wow. Somehow google's so-fucking-brilliant highly touted algorithm identified this as a spam blog? I don't think so. What a pile of horse-shit and another example of their corporate fascism. How convenient — all in lock-step with their ongoing acts as agents of the US Corporate Government through various censorship efforts and failure to promote free speech anywhere that their profits are potentially diminished — places like China for instance. But to be denied free speech here in the land of Bush Cheney Gonzales and the Patriot Act. Gee what a shock! Amerika the formerly free.

I can't wait to hear — if I ever do hear an explanation for this. All I can say for sure is F*CK YOU GOOGLE. F*CK YOUR FASCIST TAKEOVER OF THE INTERNET. AND GOOGLE CAN GO F*CK THEMSELVES YOU F*CK ING FASCIST CORPORATE SH*TEATING F*CK HEADS. CENSOR THIS YOU CENSORING F*CK WAD D*CKHEADS!

My Experience of Google's Censorship
By Zhang Lin
Translated from the Chinese edition
Oct 02, 2004


In the past, I always thought Google, the biggest search engine in the world, was also the fairest. So no matter what messages I needed to search, I always went first to the UltraReach Company’s UltraReach.Net [Editor’s note: UltrarReach.net is a web server designed to enable the user in mainland China to defeat the P.R.C.’s attempt to censor internet content], and then used Google. But a few months ago, I found there was something strange about Google.

For example, when I searched my own name “Zhang Lin” (the Chinese Communist Party [CCP] blocked my name long ago), to my surprise I found the first entry was a football player named Zhang Linbao. It is impossible for the compiler in Google’s Chinese Department not to have found such an obvious mistake a long time ago. Moreover, Google listed the entries related to “Zhang Lin” at 29,400 altogether. But when I checked the entries from the beginning to the end with patience, I found only 73 pages with 9 entries per page for a total of 657 entries.

When I searched to the last page, I suddenly found there was a link called “repeat the search with the omitted results included.” When I clicked to open it, I suddenly discovered that I was in a new world. The omitted entries included 100 pages, which were even more than the entries really listed. Moreover, nearly all of the omitted content was related to me. Apparently I was considered to be a main “deleted” person (whoever is interested can check this for him or herself). At that moment, the only thing I could think is that Google has been penetrated by an agent of the CCP.

So several months ago, I planed to write an article to expose that Google had been penetrated by an agent of the CCP. What I could not believe was that Google had openly cooperated with the autocratic regime of the CCP and destroyed the freedom of the network.

But recently I saw the series of articles that explained how Google really had started to cooperate with the CCP. At the request of the CCP, Google largely deleted the terms that the CCP intended to block.

This action has violated the basic principles of the network – free access and fair treatment. The Chinese people have been deceived and persecuted and their sources of information have been blockaded, by the CCP for a long time. Google is obviously suspected of helping a tyranny to do evil. Though Google remains the best Chinese search engine, we have the right to require that Google act justly, which is also good for Google’s own healthy development.

A company that compromises with or even flatters an autocratic regime may obtain a few benefits. Eventually, though, actions taken to help a tyranny will be condemned by the public and a cost will be paid. Generally speaking, such a company loses more than it gains. Swiss Banks cooperated with the Nazis, granted loans to make munitions, and swallowed up the Jews’ accounts. But eventually justice was served.

This should be a cautionary tale for Google. Unless Google’s current leaders just want to reap some money and walk away, Google should consider its long-term policy. Please, at the first sight of profits, don’t forget what is right and don’t abandon basic principles.

Editor’s Note: The filtering that Zhang Lin reports in this first person account is of a different kind than what Google News China, a service just begun on September 9, admitted to practicing in a statement the week before last. Google News China does not allow the client to see the “omitted results.” Zhang Lin was [not] able to see those results.
