"After reading an article[fr] (English language version) presenting a new Google initiative to map deforestation, I encountered a surprise when opened with a Terms Of Service page! Not a small two-line 'we're in beta' terms of service page, a full multi-page lawyer-dream EULA. And when clicked on agree, I got a pop-up asking me to agree again!

Since we all know that all information has to be proven 100% correct and safe before being published on the web, have you noticed EULAs in other no-login sites? Why are Google's lawyers getting in the way when it's about important scientific data?"

    mod parent troll, flamebait, or overrated. Wow, welcome to my Foe list despite '67 The Prisoner being one of my favorite television series of all time. You're rant there certainly is nowhere in character for your chosen handle of 'number6'. Quite the argument for's comportment moderation. I don't think comments like this (getting max-madded) are good for SoylentNews in the long term. All this despite my agreeing with some of your thoughts about things. Do you really believe littering your post with "clever c*nts" is going to get your ideas any traction? Or are you just 100% troll?
