    What do you mean by that ?
    if you're looking for a particular point they are useful for that

    That doesn't make the point invalid does it.
    All it means that it hasn;t been proved to you.

    How would you know that unless you had sufficient information or
    knowledge of the subject.

    No it does not.

    That doesn;t make any sense.

    Theer;'s always been a consiracy as to whether or not man landed on
    the moon.
    In order to judge for myself I had to search for the evidence provided
    by those that
    dis-believe and those that believe. I needed to do that in porder to
    form my own opinion.
    For em toying in Did man land on the moon to google or ask jeeves was
    not enough,
    I wanted to go deeper so formj my own opinion and to do that I need to
    have the opinions
    and the evidence of others, searching out those opinions was

    I don;t think so as you can view the discussion and controversy, no
    such thing in the encyclopepia britanica.
    wiki also has link to referencies and sources if you wish to look
    further into the subject.

    Nothing wrong with that provided you look at more than just the first
    or one result.

    Hardly neutral as it's only showing things about Fukushima and listed
    by hits or popularity.
    Which is a problem if you're search fro the dangers of keeping
    radioacive elements.
    You may get the impression that the only danger they pose is if
    destroyed by natrual causes.

    Perhaps because at the time is was secret, unless you completly
    undestand why it was secret.

    > There is no evidence of corporate greed at Kodak.

    How would you search for such a things, if I was searching for such a
    thing I'd
    try the easy route first and see if anyone else has come up with
    anything I can investsigate.

    Typing " corporate greed Kodak" would be a good starting point, but
    maybe if you didn't want to find such things
    out you'd use the seach "kittens kodak cute" that way you'd be
    unlikely to find any results regarding coperate greed at kodak
    which as you say would be the aim.
