I think the world is coming _from_ a little garage, but soon grows wings and
exhibit vanity. I noticed in the past that they registered

I guess it was Chmoogle as in "Google Schmoogle", which can be perceived as
offensive at worst.

Yup. Thanks. Do know (sic) evil? I guess I now have an excuse to eradicating
para-sites. *smile*

"... Chmoogle is clearly not "confusingly similar" to Google, and the

This is a chemistry web site. I would think that the pronunciation of
Chmoogle would probably be more like Kmoogle than like SHmoogle.

Anyway that doesn't really matter. It's bad enough Google thinks it
owns the English alphabet let alone pronunciation in English.
Alphabetic characters belong to who again?

What will they take on next? Mr. Noodles (TM)? Rhymes with Googles. How
about God, that's starts with the same letter as Google, probably
already too synonymous to bother squabbling over?

I guess if I spend time at the beaches this summer and then decide to
write about my travel experiences I better not entitle it "Canadian
Beaches - Go Ogle".

Hey, that just gave me a great idea ... I haven't gone fishing yet
today ... I better go ogle my minnows and worms to make sure they are
still alive.

Sorry Google, still love 'ya bro'. Peace.
