    Read Internet censorship in the People's Republic of China on Wikipedia for an overview. It's political censorship, not moral censorship.

    I highly doubt they would leave China. Hacking is a lame excuse. We will know the truth behind all these soon.

    It is interesting that you mention revenue. Google's revenue in China has not exactly been stellar. Their market share is quite low, in fact.

    If you check the FAQ we do have a standing rule against political drama in the forum. kohoutek is quite right to step back from a potential argument.

    Good on Google for calling foul! It matters not why or if they pull out completely.

    The message is sent. And it's in the inbox of more than just the Chinese.

    Also remember we have a rule here about no discussions on politics.

    Aye, many discussions can veer toward politics, but we all just need to steer the ship around that iceberg, eh?
