Replies On Wikia Search, and "taking on Google"

Regarding the list of questions on Wikia Search, Jimmy Wales wrote a reply. I'll refrain from summarizing his responses, as whatever I said could be attacked as biased and unfair. Anyone interested can read the whole thing.

I'll highlight this part of the exchange, without further comment:

Paul Vixie: "[T]he noncredibility of the early claims about "taking on google" is the biggest weakness wikia search has got."

Jimmy Wales : "And this meme (which comes mostly from the media that loves a David and Goliath story) is also probably the biggest strength we have got right now. It's a monster either way. :)"

Paul Vixie: "[T]he truth is stronger. i recommend running with it and abandoning the meme."
