[citation][nom]Godhatesusall[/nom]Google won't do it.....Seriously,does anyone here believe that a huge multi-national corporation will just throw away 1 bn $ just because they "care about censorship"?[/citation]
Well, Google went public about it. If GMail accounts are targeted you can believe that other providers like Hotmail, Yahoo and others were targeted also. Only Google is talking. I do not care what policy corporation has I care how the corporation acts.
[citation][nom]Godhatesusall[/nom]Corporations are corporations, and by definition are greedy.It is people who must force corporations to act differently, but i didnt notice any serious movement to force google to stand against china's censorship policies.[/citation]
Corporations don't have personalities. Corporations only project the personality of the people working for it. If people inside corporation are greedy the corporation will appear greedy also. Yes, I agree that we can and should keep corporations responsible, but not only as customers, but more important to stand up for our values as an employee.
What is really troubling is that lately too many "Americans" are and willing to "compromise" their values when the price is their pay check.
