    What's truly impressive to me is that OP actually managed to hook some people (all mods and several regulars) into choosing manners over common sense.

    While this may be a good thing from a socio-functional standpoint, it is nevertheless baffling how such an obvious troll is given tons of leeway simply because of his (no girls on teh intarwebs) claimed affiliation. Is Google truly so deserving? Or any other big business, for that matter?

    It's just a troll. Notice how its kept quiet after making a couple of posts and let us ramble on about it? This fail thread really should be closed by now and moved to General Nonesense.

    Since you couldn't provide any sufficient proof of your Google affiliation, I fixed your account for you.

    Because AltraVista is like the cesspit of search engines. If he is a google rep, he's probably raging harder at this than the bing "scroogled" commercials.

    I can answer a few questions for you McSteel;

    Did the mods believe this person was from Google
    No. If you could see our internal discussion you would agree.

    Why choose manners over common sense?
    It's our job to treat people with good manners as long as they do not break any of the forum rules. This person broke no rules.

    Why did the thread remain open?
    As a weekend CCT. That would be "Crap Containment Thread". We use them to keep all the thread crapping in one place and hopefully out of other threads. They usually work fairly well.
