    Shocked, I tell you, shocked. It’s bad enough that bloggers clog the Google results as is. Now you start gratuitously mentioning Paris Hilton to get more hits.

    Here I was, happily searching for the number one amateur sex tape in the world and I’ve been needlessly diverted by what? A discussion of open source/free software issues? A presentation regarding consumers’ rights?

    Geez, keep it in the closet where it belongs, willya?
