I don't understand why these people can't follow standards. Standards are a requirement for everyday business.
Im sure yahoo/google follow standards when it comes to:
hiring "affirmative action" staff
doing whatever is "necessary" under employment law (and nothing more)
having their ways in the court system(s)
I mean google wouldn't like to walk into a court room and have the judge be a hybrid monkey hanging from the ceiling now would they? Nobody would expect that because we have standards.
So does the internet and it's about time these idiots start to follow it and stop abusing it only for their own competitive edge.
I aim this a little more at google since yahoo would do the same thing if it wasn't a gigantic failure of a company.
and as only yahoo's ceo can understand, f*c* y*u.
