That's a great thread.

> bollocks

Yeah we suspected, but it's nice to have confirmation in Google's own docs.

It's incredible the number of people in the comments who say things like, "This is called Tuesday at any big company." They see this is inevitable and basically just normal business.

They do not seem to get how they themselves were personally hurt because Google consciously exploited what Google themselves call an "unfair advantage" in order to bury competitors and how their definition of "competitor" is "any website that gets a lot of traffic, whether they are a search engine or not."
