Bush, Carter, and Michael Moore. Amusing, but I understand where Val's coming from, too. I don't think it's quite as serious as she's making it
out to be, though. After all, Google is a search engine. You enter a word or series of words, and it retrieves websites that relate to those words. I
don't know about any of you, but I don't trust that Google or any search engine is going to return the exact information I had in my head when I did
a search. Typically, I do a search, open three or four pages, skimming them and closing those that aren't exactly what I'm looking for.
So far as I can fathom, the severity of this is the possibility that I spend another 10 minutes scanning and closing websites in the event the false
pages aren't obviously false.
It is interesting, though, that, if Google claims hackers did it, they still haven't corrected it. Were they hackers? Then why hasn't the largest
search engine in the world gone about correcting a hack that is well known?
