Re: A web search tool that costs you nothing and generates donations to AMSAT

Uhhhh...  please note that the article states that Yahoo's HONG KONG unit 
provided the police with the information...

If you think that a business division in Hong Kong, under the Chinese 
government's ever watchful eye, could do anything BUT cooperate, you are 
quite mistaken.  And certainly don't condemn the whole company because of 
what ONE of its divisions is FORCED to do.
