Censorship, Google, and counter censorship.

A number of people are complainning about Google kissing China's ass and agreeing to censor their pages. I wonder how long until people censor Google? When search engine caches a site, they first look for a robots.txt file. This file let's site say who can cache their site, and what pages they can cache.

Now a good part of Googles success is the completeness of their database, if concerned people disallowed google form caching their site, then Googles value as a search engine goes down.

If the censorship issue really bothers you, either you censor google or ask you site admin to do it.

It's easy, and en mass it can dramatically affect Google title as King of the Search Engines.
