Google Well, this was pretty much inevitable. With Google having pretty much a monopoly in search, it's not surprising to see authorities putting the company under a microscope, and this is exactly what the European Commission is doing. The EC has launched a fact-finding antitrust probe into Google. However, looking at where the probe originates from, some might have a sense of "ah!". Update: more bad news for Google.

Pardon me?

Come back when you have a sensible, mature and non-rude comment on how one should actually define an anti-competitive practice in the search market.

The buying search users and the selling higher page rankings certainly sounds to me like a good place to start.

You are trying a classic argument: Microsoft is doing X, so why should we look at Google for doing X? You are trying to downplay the accusations against Google by pointing at Microsoft and saying "but they do it too!".

That's the argumentative skill of a 5 year old.

No need to insult the 5-years olds.
