Hi all,

This week's poll question is about the news that Google is going to pull out of the Chinese market. Discuss here what you think of this decision, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks!
Justin

They (Google) knew about China going in, but they went ahead regardless, if things aren't panning out for them, they are free to leave. But, of course, it is Google & they'll love to stay if they can turn things around -- in their favor -- by any means necessary.

"Google knows everything, Google wants everything. It tells you what to do and what dont!"

Google itself actually knows nothing, it is the human input that makes it work. Google is just a software made by man.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

"Google knows everything, Google wants everything. It tells you what to do and what dont!"

The reason they pulled out is the opposite reason, the chinese government made google filter searches to block out any ani-government/china content and anything else they wanted. It was very restrictive and controlling and in my opinion very imorral.

So the reason why google is no longer is in china is purely because it didnt want to tell/filter what people could and could not see on the internet. Similar laws are being concidered in Australia to filter out content about illegal activities. The problem with that is 'illegal activities' is a damn wide definition, so sites about say graffiti art (the lgitimate stuff) would be blocked out as would sites about safe drug use.

Any laws regarding internet filtering should be extremely specific, and activly updated. The chinese government can block any content it pleases, so google decided to pull out. In my opinion a very very good idea and improved their standing in my eyes.
