Yesterday evening I saw a tweet about Google shutting down Weasel Zippers, the site that searches the bowel’s of the Internet so you won’t have to..
Most people visiting here are familiar with site.. I know this because several times a day someone will send me an email, a tweet or post something on Facebook asking me to look at something on Weasel Zippers
My first thought was bull.. Weasel Zippers is a popular well established site that doesn’t do anything offensive.
Well, unless someone thinks finding and reporting news from all over web.. generally with a short sometimes snarky comment is offensive. They don’t do anything that would give Google a legitimate reason to shut em down, besides I knew Google didn’t host the site, so they couldn’t shut ‘em down..
I went over to take a look and see what was going on.
I was right, Google couldn’t shut down Weasel Zippers like they did Gates of Vienna a year or so ago. But they could make it really tough to keep the site open….
Please support Weasel Zippers. Also share Google’s latest crackdown in their war on Conservatives.
