    Forgive me for feeding the troll, but I find it really interesting that your definition of freedom includes using other people's resources in ways they've explicitly said they don't want you to. Do you feel that you also have the right to visit Google's headquarters, log onto their production systems, and make changes to their code, just because they "don't own you?"

    I VERY MUCH respect GOOGLE.

    I very much doubt that; if you did you wouldn't be trying to steal the service they provide at a reasonable price.

    But they DON'T own me.

    Nope. But they own their resources and are perfectly entitled to dictate the terms under which you have use of them.

    So I choose to use what I like how I like it.

    If you don't like their terms you're perfectly free to build your own search infrastructure and use it as you see fit (including offering free access to spiders if you want).

    I SEEK LIBERTY,FREEDOM, GOOGLE IS AGAINST ME, F*** THEM,F*** GOOGLE!!!

    You seek a free ride, not freedom. You're not oppressed; you're cheap.

    If you did not understand what I've just said,listen to this and you will understand:

    So . . . because you're Greek and . . . listen to metal . . . you're entitled to steal resources . . . from a company that provides a similar but different service . . . under different terms that you don't like because you're cheep . . . or, wait . . .

    Nope, can't see where you're going with that there.

    DECREASE MY XP POINTS,BAN MY IP BUT I WILL NEVER BE WITHOUT MY FREEDOM!

    Nah . . . not working yet. Try some blue face paint and a kilt. Of course you'll probably wind up having to pay for those too; you might could find some enlightenment at a library for free, though.
