Next, I cannot access my blog, which I have written for years. I learn that I must download Google’s new browser, Chrome, in order to access my own blog. Surrendering to The Thug, I paid their extortion demand and did so, even though I was satisfied with whatever browser I had.
At this point, I do not know if this post will appear on my blog or not. I don’t know if past blog postings are still available or not.
Of course, in a theoretical world, I could have refused to pay the ransom to access my own blog and NOT download whatever Google wanted me to download. Of course, this is the real world, where a Thug by any other name is still a Thug!
At this point, I do know that Google has also violated its own motto of “Do No Evil.”
