Gawd I hate the Internet

Back before the Internet, database magazines vetted their authors. Sadly, today's web is chock full of posers and jerks, intent on ruining the power of the web and inserting profanity and sleeze into even the most innocent web searches.

For today’s example, Google for Client server database

Warning! This incocent Google query will return profanity.

Tghis remonds me of when I was teaching my kids to search the web. It was 1997, and the movie "Titanic" had just came out.

Doping a web search for "titanic" was a big mistake! Lots of references to titanic-sized body parts. . . .
