28. Exactly!!! And, I'm always amazed at how many don't understand that what is

free on Google comes with a lot of strings attached, tentacles into vast privacy invasion and many willingly click away and enter vast amounts of personal information, traits, trends, interests, etc., etc. into Google and the like.

I also have a suspicion that Google drops a lot of results out of searches as not intended for serf consumption. I don't have the results in front of me, but often I've looked for things in Google that don't seem to be there anymore. I've done no proactive searching for this, but just a nagging sixth sense telling sometimes what I've seen over the years is now gone.

Also, sometimes, my technical searches present me with pages and pages of ads. I realize this is important for their revenue, but sometimes it seems a bit overbearing.
