Search Engine Accountability (was RE: Reality Check)

Perhaps the search engine manages the key.
Perhaps the search engine charges to be listed.
Perhaps you can choose not be on that search engine.
Perhaps the users like to use that search engine because you
  can find something pertinent on it to your keywords.
Perhaps I am on crack.
Perhaps I don't want to share my crack.
Perhaps I just wanted to know if anyone else ever fondled this
  particular idea fondly.
Perhaps I thought this was a forum for fondling ideas fondly.
Perhaps a few people have gotten a little too uptight fondle
  ideas fondly or otherwise.
