Google Threatens Australia: Make Us Pay Tax and We

Just another example of the types of deranged, arrogant and psychotic people that currently run the Internet.

EDIT/UPDATE
This is satire.

      Google would never complain or threaten like that. Losing a whole continent so they could not click on their sponsored links would be madness compared with the taxes they pay. Suspected this as farce straight away.

      The only thing to fear is Lanfear itself.

          What! You didn't see Google's cartoon dancing banjo playing munchkins homepage on St.Patrick's day?

          Everything else is sh*t about it I'll give you.

          I've been using Bing since January - at least they pay you when you use their engine thru their rewards program - every 500 searches you can get a $5 Amazon gift certificate - working on my 4th one now.

            The Backburner is Australia's most trusted news source, it is quite obviously satire and shouldn't be taken seriously or before operating heavy machinery.
            Sounds like some of our "most trusted news sources" - though they don't add disclaimers...

              I just watched some MSM on tv the other day and was wondering how people take that crap seriously. Made me do the RCA dog head tilt to think that is what our general population is washing down with their dinners. You could have run this story on any MSM channel and it would have been taken as real solid news. Of course, on TV it comes with the correct "opinion" to hold on the events as well so nobody has to think too much about it.

    It's strange how companies collectively behave like blood thirsty power hungry psychopaths, yet if you examine the people behind these companies they're all for the most part normal people and the unethical behaviour is always another department or individuals fault.

      We were laughing at network news last week. Every day a few minutes of time now is dedicated to "in the race" or "may be declaring"....blah blah.

      For most, there is one or two photos shown during the news blurb. We noted for one female contender there are at least 10 different photos shown and in one 2 minute blurb yesterday we counted 14 photos. It's like having your own media scrapbook site!
