Yahoo what are you doing ?
I was reading an article on Yahoo news titled : Big Brother Britain ‘going to far’
Big Brother Britain is going a step too far, the UK’s Information Commissioner has warned.
Richard Thomas has spoken out against apparent plans for a massive new Government database which could contain every phone call, text message, email and internet search made by each and every one of us.
Mr Thomas said the proposal raises serious concerns about data protection.

If you look at the Yahoo article you will see that I have made the links in the Yahoo snippet bold instead of actual links, but in my opinion a news article should only link to sources that backs up the article or give a little more information, so why add in more links ?, why would Yahoo do this ?
.. ok we know the answer is seo, but why the fuck are they just doing a text find and replace, without any context to the article I mean “Big Brother Britain” linking to results for a Game show, are we going to see one of George Bushes aids linking to results about plants or HIV ??
What yahoo are doing imo is changing the POV of the article, which is a serious issue for privacy and the first link goes to a game show.. when Microsoft buy you I hope they sack the idiots in charge of these areas !
