So BBC should be omitted from Google searches? Or does not BBC broadcast in terms of UK national interest?


I don't know enough about them. They get public funds much like PBS does in the US but public funds alone doesn't make something propaganda. Day to day control still matters. Does the British government tell the BBC what goes on the air?

But they kinda do. e.g. Fox


Fox has interests that align with Republicans, that doesn't mean the government is dictating what they publish.

The contents can provide clues. For example, if you ask for me to wire you money because you're a prince of a small country, that would raise suspicion. If you wanted to let me know there's a sales going on a Khol's this weekend, that'd seem legit.


To bring in additional data though requires user tracking, something that many people are against. There are some very good reasons why we shouldn't be tracking and storing user information but at the same time creating databases that can be referenced does have a benefit to the consumer/end user as companies can tailor their products to the customer.

For example, one of my biggest complaints about the market today is that there's no way for me to know if I will like a product before I buy it. I can use recommendations and reviews but at the end of the day, I may be purchasing something that I don't want. I just don't know I don't want it yet. With enough tracking and analysis of my preferences, I can be steered towards products I'm more likely to enjoy when looking for something new.

It's a double edged sword though in trying to filter good information from marketing that's designed to sell me something I may not like because there's more profit in doing so.



I hope no one accepts any single source from people for information whether they claim it is validated or not.


Sometimes there's no choice. For example, lets look at military intelligence. There may only be one report of specific activity, especially in cases of espionage. Someone in the command chain has to determine if that information is credible based on what is essentially nothing more than that information. This applies to much more than just search data, as I said before, it has applications all over the place. Sometimes the best information is still limited so verification is tricky. A current downfall of a consensus based system is that it needs large amounts of data.



I agree with competition being a good defense...which is why I'm glad we have choices in this country. I hope it never comes down to a sole person/company provider for anything.


Choice interests me a lot. It clearly works, but it simply runs counter to how my mind works and evaluates things.

How many people still even USE Google for searches? I never do. As in, never. Not interested in what they want me to see. I prefer a real search, using something that doesn't track, like DuckDuckGo, for example!

This site claims 77% of planet earth uses Google which leads to 6,586,013,574 searches a day worldwide.

The DOJ has subpoenaed records about the alleged organizers of the anti-Trump inauguration-day protests. That is scary. DreamHost is fighting it.

GoDaddy is on the burner now for hosting Daily Stormer. Other hosts are also beginning to examine their T&Cs.

This is huge. Soon the Internet will be cordoned off from us, just like in China and N Korea.

That's one possibility. It's not hard to host a website though, there's an endless supply of hosts out there, and to the end user it's all the same thing.

If you're really concerned about the internet being cordoned off, then pay attention to the Net Neutrality ruling that's coming up in a couple weeks. The FCC just extended the comment period by about 2 weeks. Now is the time to convince them of your views. I'll probably write a thread on the subject in the coming days.
