Oh, and, did anyone notice how Google got its competitors to do something without needing to get a standards committee involved? All within hours?
Hmm, why doesn't everything in the industry work like this?
The answers are...
- because the industry doesn't (yet) use hypertext as the engine of application state.
- actually, the industry that matters does work like this.
Also - how do you know they don't follow the link? This is just a negative score value stored and used in in their weighting algorithm. Eventually you could find things people explicitly don't want found.
