Google Google has been basking in good publicity from refusing US government demands to hand over search results but in China it is happy to create a search engine based on government specifications. Google will offer a censored version of its search engine running on servers in China. It will remove results on 'sensitive' topics like human rights and Tibet. The decision would not seem so bad coming from another company but Google used to pride itself on the morality of its business strategy and devotion to free speech.

That never stopped them before. Before implying I'm an idiot, you should do some research. I'm sure they know an idiot when they see one though. They've had plenty of time to observe him during his 5 years of dereliction of duty.
