What about Google and MSN?

Google and MSN have both entered into a complicit agreement with China's oppressive policies. As of the writing of this blog, these two services--to my knowledge--have not yet provided personal information to the Chinese government that has resulted in the carrying out of any draconian measures such as those suffered by Shi Tau.

Therefore, it is the goal of BooYahoo! to focus our attention only on Yahoo! at this time. This may change any day, however.

Based on the policy of these two major internet services in China, Google and MSN may be guilty of the same Human Rights abuses that Yahoo! is currently guilty of. When faced with these decisions, however, Google or MSN may make different choices. People replacing the services may consider using services other than Google or MSN, in case they go the way of Yahoo!.

Should you decide eventually to boycott google too, you will have to close this account, as blogger is owned by google.

And in that event I'm sure that action will be taken to relocate this site.

The time has come to boycott Google and MSN, too. This could quickly become an international movement that might well succeed in getting all of these companies to reverse their policies of complicity with government censorship. For search purposes, what about Altavista.com and Alltheweb.com ?
