Bullies on the Virtual Playground: How search engines fancy themselves as thought police.

I never understood cowards. They are those who want to find out as much about you, but hide their lives — and then want to use your information against you, and then think they are so cunning and superior to you, that they are going to force you to think the way they want you to think…and muah ha ha, and all that jazz.
