To hell with Human Rights & other silly slogans. Let's dig more gold in China now before it vanishes like USSR. Tibet is neither Kuwait nor Israel & no money can be made there, why shall we care?

Be quiet & let the Games begin and let's all have good life!

Yahoo! has also started spidering websites and checking specifically for Tibet-related during the recent situation.

Yahoo's new search technology allows for vertical integration of search indexes, so I think they are trying to remove possibly "offensive" content at all levels from Web to Images to Video quickly.

You can Google on how to block Yahoo's spider on specific searches.


Thank you for this post - very well said and balanced.
