Drugs = Bad.
not always true
drugs is another word for medicine "i believe", hence why you have Drug stores and at one airport i was at they had a shop called "Drugs and Books", yeah it was a strange one.
illegal drugs = bad
Not all "illegal drugs are bad....
for example cannabis does more good than harm....
^i hope you have a nice, flame retardant hemp jacket on sir
One thing I have never understood about american drugs companies, is that they copywright a name for the drug, that isn't its scientific name, yet almost always make it sound something very similar. If I had to name a drug, I'd call it wonderfulonium or Amazinium or something.
And yes, I think google just ignored the problem for as long as they could. Nice to see they've changed it
Drugs are bad, m'kay, but going after Google for linking to the illegal pharmacies rather than hitting the pharmacies themselves is a bit like going after the bit-torrent search engines rather than the seeders. There's some pretty questionable stuff on the internet, and I can't help but wonder if Google (and other search engines) are being a bit hard done by when people expect them to police it. Why should the search engines (who only link to the offending content) be the target, rather than the suppliers themselves, or their webhosts, or the spam botnet operators responsible for all their direct e-mail marketing, or the credit card companies who are processing their payments, or the user's on ISP for letting them access those sites etc.?
With other illegal content online, like explicit images of children (and I realise of course that this is far more extreme, but the point is valid), all of those intermediary "facilitators" have been the target of extraordinary pressure to eliminate the industry, by blocking access to content, reporting users attempting to access it, blacklisting it from search engines, blocking payments for it, etc.
They're not going after google search, but google ads.
"...and that Google 'screen such sites from Internet searches.'"
Google are clearly idiots. You don't put money in a war chest, you put money in a treasure chest, war chests are for axes & crossbows & such.
"In business a war chest, or cash mountain is a stash of money set aside to deal with unexpected changes in the business environment, or to use when expansion possibilities arise. The term originates with the medieval practice of having a chest, literally, filled with money to open in time of war."
Wikipedia don't make me find a proper source
It's a fairly common term
You're a fairly common term.
You'll need to look up the term "sarcasm" as well
edit: Damnit Pirate
If it's any consolation your retort was much wittier.
heh, love this place sometimes
Yeah Mighty Pirate is right, you put money in a Treasure Chest! Idiots!
haha, that made me lol
same people that hands out ADHD drugs like candy? seems like they are just trying to get back those lost market share
To be fair, most regard anyone who hands out candy as fairly suspicious; it's like they have something against pensioners.
Also, can we combine and into one big super smiley, it seems liek it would be quite useful, if only to have something to use as Mankz' signature.
Separate names with a comma.
