I meant to say "shouldn't he want more people to look him up" it shows he has more support.

Just ask yourself where "Google" got its' seed money from. Not there is an eyeopener about freedom!! Except for FLG and some (but not all) "Free Tibet" sites I can get 99% of what I search for.

I wonder if the Chinese government is actually able to find successful, educated foreigners to write crap, instead of old senile Aussies who make tons of spelling and grammar mistakes. If their spelling and grammar are so terrible, their concept of ideas must be skewed as well. Only failures at home would leave 1st world countries to go live in such a crappy place.

The other day a list of words was published that will get you added to a watch list in the USA if you use them on the internet. Based on some of the words used I can imagine that everybody in the USA must be under surveillance.
