    Google has crossed the line. Every result is based on people paying for placement. There is so much out there about SEO that if the results aren't based on payment, you'll get some fucker who has paid a company to optimize his site. It's getting really hard to actually find what you are looking for.

    Anybody have a favorite search engine that isn't all fucked up? I hope it isn't Bing. I really don't want to support Microsoft anymore than I have to.

    Yeah, that's one of those Metasearch sites. I sort of forgot about them. Thanks! I'll give it a try.

    How'd you like to work for them? I throw those fuckers right in the recycle bin when I get them. They have to be dying. They are kind of late to the game on the web.
