    Link: Google rebuffs feds over access to search data - Bush administration wants details of what users look for. Yahoo already gave in.

    At least my paranoia is warranted. I`m going to go there now and search words on the watchlist, just to see what would happen.

    YEAHHHH GO GOOGLE!!!! Stand up to those governmnt pigs. The gov. should make it`s own case in supreme court, if they can`t get what they want done when they control the presidency, the congress, the house of representatives, and the supreme court, then it must be something f**ked up. If the gov. needs specific info about "adult" websites why don`t they just ask for that info instead of a weeks worth of searches and a random 1,000,000 searches.

    I think people are gonna look back in history on G.W.`s term in office and think that he was the catalyst that changed the way the world works (for the worse)

    just my $.02

    stupid SOB, yahoo sucks anyway. Even still what gives the gov`t any right to subpoena this information? Yet again the issue of the right to privacy is brought up. AND if google did submit the records think about what would happen to them, IMO they would suffer a dent in their stock. Viva la resitance!

    Truefully I wouldn`t care if the Gov was interested in what people are looking for. But ever since the whole `we`ve been phone taping people without a court order` crap, I don`t trust the MY own government anymore. What possibly can the be looking for? And do give me this "It`s for the protection of our kids!". They have ulterior motives going on here.

    I actually agree with some aspects of what the government will be using it for. Obviously they could be lying about not accessing private information. But they already have the right to find out what you buy and CAN view your credit card report as to what you have bought. I mean, they will be able to find illegal child pornography and find out demographics of areas etc. Plus if you arn`t doing anything illegal then you should have nothing to hide. Although there are downsides to this the upsides deffinantly outway them. Infact the only downside I can possibly see as using this is as a tool to find ways to advertise your politcal party by finding peoples intrests, but they already have people in the goverment that do that for them

    not only screw Yahoo but screw google to. Why would google save every single search query ever in the first place? screw that, especially when it onyl takes a single word in their code to change it from logging all searches to not logging all searches. they can also opt not to atatch you name and whole history to your searches, but they rather be evil bastards who will eventually sell out everything about you.

    in the end, if google and yahoo had no records to give, then they would not be harrased by the government, simpel as that.

    Good for Google. If they caved in, I`d have Secret Service bursting through my windows for such search queries as `White house exit points` and `White house tour paths` and `available rooms in the apartment across the street from the Oval Office` and `Presidential Assassinations for Dummies`.
