I really hate this damned machine. I wish that they would sell it. It never does quite what I want. But only what I tell it.

"Google's Terms of Service do not allow the sending of automated queries of any sort to our system without express permission in advance from Google."
If every website adopted this policy, Google themselves would be out of business tomorrow. Or maybe compete with DMOZ. There probably exists no company that sends out more automated queries than Google. It's not exactly the height of hypocrisy, because they do respect robots.txt and if you don't want to be there you don't have to. However, we all know that if you are not to be found on google, you don't exist. Descartes famously said, "Cogito ergo sum" I think therefore I am. Today he would say, "Above the fold on google ergo sum."

It would be nice if you left your e-mail address. Sometimes I want to send a private message, or just thank for the great comment. Having your e-mail really helps.
I will never ever spam you.
