Several years ago, Blammer (sic) said that Google was a temporary, hyped up
companywhich would vanish in 5 years. He also unveiled the search engines
which was bound to 'kill' Google.
All they can do is lie and arouse people's curiosity. Some fools will
actually fall for the statement which says MSN will be "twice as good (as
google)". That's what Microsoft's spokesman said. In effect, this can lead
to the placebo effect.

Google does a better job, still. It also has the advantage of getting spam
reports from people and re-adjusting the indices. Who the hell ever reports
spam to MSN? It's a search engine monopoly, but let Microsoft have a taste
of their own type of poison, for a change.
