Comrade Google

Urban legend has it that Google’s motto is “Do no evil”, or “Don’t be evil”. That’s wrong. In fact, the way it’s stated on their website is: “You can make money without doing evil.”

This is an entirely different concept, and a good thing too, otherwise they’d be open to charges of hypocrisy – having just agreed to co-operate with the Chinese Communists to suppress search results. Their excuse seems to be that “the Chinese were doing it anyway.”

“You can make money without doing evil.” But, apparently you just can’t make quite as much.
