The search engine I use is ixquick.com, now named Start Page. It dubs itself the world�s most private search engine, for what it’s worth, although I think at least it’s images are powered by Google which makes me lose some faith in it.
I don’t use Facebook. I prefer Gab.ai which lacks in workability but makes up for by almost never censoring legal content.
Thanks, Colt. I will definitely give ixquick.com a look.
Just for the record, Srarboy, when I said “replace” I didn’t mean in an existential sense. I just meant are there replacements that a lone, citizen like myself can turn to? Competition, in other words. I realize no one is going to put Facebook or Google out of business, and I don’t really want to (well, maybe just a little :-D). Sorry if my initial post caused confusion.
I dare anyone to guess where the next “hit” is going to be. Mostly because if you turn out to be right, there will be several armor-clad people knocking down your door a few minutes later asking you (with the aid of a large rubber hose) how you knew where the attack would come. Call me crazy, but THAT would make me laugh.
Don’t know enough about the case to make any decision. The mere accusal of assault, unless there’s actual evidence to back it up, is not enough in my mind to convict the fellow. And on top of that, nine-million dollars is a Hell of a lot of money, and there’s no way, even if he did assault her, that she needs that much money to “compensate.”
