This is specific to the manifesto affair, not mistakes Google made in general. Perhaps update the title to reflect this?

this article is cr*p, the author is too entitled. I believe Google have spoiled googlers so much.

Google should really get a grip on itself.

Advocating the freedom of expression is one thing https://www.google.com/intl/en/takeaction/free-expression/

"The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum." -- Noam Chomsky
