[linux-elitists] So...who's been google-hacking?

In the immortal words of tom watson <email@example.com>:
Apparently, the whole stunt was a google bomb similar to the
grassroots campaign to link the phrase "miserable failure" to
www.whitehouse.gov/president/gwbbio.html (the official White House
web bio of George W. Bush. Except this time, there was a grassroots
campaign among bloggers to link the phrase "litigious bastards" to
www.sco.com -- and it almost worked, too. That is, it started to work,
but Google stopped it from working. The kuro5hin post above explains
a compelling reason why Google would block this, but leave "miserable
failure" intact. ("miserable failure" still brings up Dubya's bio in
the #2 position, though oddly michaelmoore.com is now the #1 result.)
P.S. Sorry, Tom -- I accidentaly replied to you rather than the list the
first time, so you'll end up with a duplicate of this one.
