Expensive fakes

No more Googlebombs

I periodically get emails from people who are amused to find that if you type "miserable failure" into Google, the first result is a link to the White House.  And they say satire is dead...

Well, now Google have put a stop to this little game, as they explain here.

Can't argue with the logic of this.  After all, Google's job is to provide the most accurate search results, not provide amusement for people with too much time on their hands.
