    Mar 21 2012: "Don't be Evil!" motto was brought into Google by Paul Buchheit, the creator of Gmail! I thought it was Larry and Sergey's idea...
    look here --> www.donttrack.us

    I used to really love google, for the same reason "Don't be evil!', but i try avoid google and use www.duckduckgo.com

    But I still use gmail, cuz i like it, and for documents.

    Right now I'm being tracked by these companies:
    AddThis
    Doubleclick
    Google Analytics
    Netratings Site Census
    ChartBeat
    Comscore Beacon

    and they're all doing it without my permission...
