If I’m being honest, I’ll admit that I’m probably a little biased. I’d like to think of myself as an unbiased observer, but there’s still things I can’t stand. Some of it is due to fear of losing my job, and some of it is due to a complete lack of self-awareness.

I really don’t know what to say. These practices are certainly questionable, but I am not sure that they should be outlawed. It is the nature of the marketplace, and in particular the internet, that anything can be made illegal at any time. No one has to be prosecuted, and the penalties are often much smaller.

For example, search engines are not allowed to restrict the search results that a site gets if its ranking is lowered, so if your site falls below a certain level of ranking it could lose its ranking. It also helps if your site is not on the search engine’s home page, so it can be found at least by humans.

It sounds to us like there are some cases where the companies aren’t just getting a good deal by abusing their position, they’re also getting a better deal.

They can set the prices, they can set the terms of the deals, they can set the standards, and they can decide what’s going to happen with their product. It makes no sense to us to just think of them as “being in business” when their business is making money.
