A year ago, I got a ton of comments when I explained that every Sympile search is biased.
It has to be. You think it's luck when some website shows up on the first page? We have to make sure that pornography, hate groups, lousy sites, all get buried somewhere in the Great Internet Graveyard. Type "Nazi" in the Google search box and the top search response is the American Nazi Party. You believe that?
Type "Nazi" in a Sympile search box, and the top result is the Southern Poverty Law Center, followed by the Ant-Defamation League. Sympile's not promoting any hate-filled Nazi group. We're not going to become an arm of any person or organization that is promoting racism. What about you, Google? How about growing some nerve and taking a position?
Anyway, what about "free speech" some of you are thinking. Don't the Nazis have a right spew their hate-filled message. I'm not stopping them. They can say what they want. I love "free speech." That's part of the reason why the United States is the greatest country in the world. The first amendment is the first one for a reason. And guess what? It applies to me as much as to you. And to the Nazis.
If I don't want to promote groups I don't like, it's my right. If I like a certain video, you can bet it's going to find its way to the front page of SymTube. And if you don't like it, start your own search company. Promote who you want. My company - my rules.
Anyway, all I can say, it's about time that the rest of the techies are getting in line.
Now, if we can only get Twitter to ban Donald Trump. He certainly won't be welcome on SymText. No hate groups allowed.
