  1. Yahoo attempting to form a coalition of the willing is brilliant politics. They are taking full advantage of the flak Google is taking for their China policy and deflecting the damage done to the two poor bloggers in China.
    Both are serving the same (China) market but Yahoo is trying to imprint on everyone’s mind that Google is the evil entity.

  2. Yahoo has asked for a broad co-operation by commecial media, so is the battle about bad press concerning Censorship open. Let them fight the Chinese Censorship restrictions set on the Web.
