autumnus: photomanip that looks like a monster with tendrils coming out of face and yellow eyes (anger)
Am I the only person who is not joining to the party wagon at the aftermath of Google's blog declaration?

Don't get me wrong, it is very admirable that they talked publicly about what happened. I also understand their decision about potentially leaving.

However I can also see that pulling stakes and leaving while looking like a heroic movement does no benefit to people left in the country who are trying to make a change. If anything, it undermines them. Closing the door only solves the problem for people left outside of it. It is often a sentence of death (figuratively speaking) for those left behind, and it solves nothing.

Now if Google found ways to circumvent the ban to bring content to China, that *would* be heroic... Not that they would be able to do it, without loosing face: being a legal business and all.
