Comments: Lazy punditry: Seeking cheap irony in Google's US vs China actions

BTW, did you see this?

Apparently Google-China's current filter doesn't recognize common typos of restricted terms. Accident or purposeful gap?

Even if Google weren't operating as a business, but rather as a cabal attempting to spread as much information as possible, it still makes sense to both fight the subpoena and open for business in China.

Actually, the subpoena is entirely separate because that's a privacy issue. Unless if the contradiction is "good vs. evil".

Lis: Thanks. I think it's just that the first blacklist didn't think of it. Easy enough to fix :-(.

Anon: The point is that the two aren't really comparable, on several axes.
