    I just read a shocking news report: In the wake of its decision to censor its search results for the oppressive Chinese government, Google is changing its original corporate motto "Don't be evil."
    The new motto, according to unnamed company sources, is: "Be semi-evil. Be quasi-evil. Be the margarine of evil. Be the Diet Coke of evil just one calorie; not evil enough!"

    Very clever.. the Chinese word for evil has multiple interpretations.. like "fuck" in English and if read backward, means ( which is normal) in Chinese, something like,

    " The participant's perspectives are clouded while the bystander's views are clear."

    Which the Chinese Government understand, and will appreciate.as it's their favourite proverb..

    The Coke reference.. was a sort of sly stab in the back for a famous Italian Pope, whose favourite lemonade was Coca-Cola. Google knew the communist Government of China, would love that one.
