“I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline. Particularly when one can’t see the details. Just the shapes. The shapes and the thought that made them. The sky over New York and the will of man made visible. What other religion do we need? And then people tell me about pilgrimages to some dank pesthole in a jungle where they go to do homage to a crumbling temple, to a leering stone monster with a pot belly, created by some leprous savage. Is it beauty and genius they want to see? Do they seek a sense of the sublime? Let them come to New York, stand on the shore of the Hudson, look and kneel. When I see the city from my window – no, I don’t feel how small I am – but I feel that if a war came to threaten this, I would throw myself into space, over the city, and protect these buildings with my body.”

Google’s latest “suggestion” to not show popups until a visitors 2nd time to site further infringes on a business’s freedom to manage their website.

For many websites, Google is the leading source of traffic. By not following their suggestions, businesses risk a substantial loss in visits (as the website will be penalized).

Over the past few years, Google has evolved their search engine algorithms to penalize sites that don’t follow their suggestions. For example; reciprocal linking, buying links, duplicate content, targeting keywords, header tags, keyword stuffing…the list goes on.
