It’s good to see somebody else exposing Google as a crooked outfit of power abuses who go way behind acting as facilitators and get into censorship and manipulation of information for their own purposes, just because they have the ability to. I already personally suffered when Google summarily deleted my “Hillary Watch Blog”, consisting of daily lists of links to articles on Hillary, mostly negative, then It’s good to see somebody else exposing Google as a crooked bunch of power abusers who go way beyond acting as facilitators and get into censorship and manipulation of information for their own purposes, just because they have the ability to, not that anybody elected them. I already personally suffered when in Mar. 2015 Google summarily deleted my “Historyscoper’s Hillary Watch Blog”, consisting of daily lists of links to articles on Hillary, mostly negative and revealing of her failings, then put up a wall of silence to keep it from being restored, finally sending a robo-message that labelled it as “spam”, in violation of their Terms of Service. I finally started a new blog with a warning that any attempt at deletion would prove that Google is crooked, and they left it alone, but never restored the original one. Instead they sent a message that a bot did it all, as if that relieves them of liability. (Obviously somebody had to concoct that message, who?) How can a whole blog be spam, as opposed to specific posts? Bulk censorship is a CRIME. And duh, spam applies only to email sent out en masse to unwilling recipients, not blogs that people opt to view, and to which the blog owner has rights! Labeling a blog as spam to delete it forever without any kind of due process shows Google up forever as a fraudulent company, I rest my case. See: http://historyscoper.com/hilla…
Who was behind that? Did it go to the top? It seems likely now. This is almost a good argument for government intervention and takeover of Google after declaring its functions a public utility that cannot be trusted to private parties. Too bad, we can’t trust the govt. either. Better, Congress should pass a law making it a felony for a facilitator to censor user content for any reason other than a court order, with civil action and treble damages authorized if the crooked govt. won’t prosecute. Oh, we already have that, it’s called RICO.
