Google can go to hell

Google sent out an email to Google Adwords customers saying that they are going to pull all Google Shopping results for guns, ammunition, gun optics and gun accessories (Shopping results, not general search results).
So, when they're not helping the PRC hunt down bloggers and such, they're deciding that firearms-related businesses don't meet their standards.

Screw Google.

Wow... Just: wow.
I found that "ACOG" is still there, but I'm sure that's based solely on the ignorance of their employees.

"ammo, ammunition, rifle scope", etc. turned up "no results". This is simply beyond anything I could have expected...

Here's why - Google Shopping is becoming a "commercial site", not a search engine.

Pay to play, and they don't want any stupid CA legal issues, I bet.

Just means I'll be sticking to Amazon.

Simple fix. Use BING.
