Also, Google Removes 'Don't Be Evil' Clause From Its Code of Conduct:
Google's unofficial motto has long been the simple phrase "don't be evil." But that's over, according to the code of conduct that Google distributes to its employees. The phrase was removed sometime in late April or early May, archives hosted by the Wayback Machine show. [...]
Despite this significant change, Google's code of conduct says it has not been updated since April 5, 2018.
Previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously.
A company whose business model is as inherently evil as Google's having a company motto of 'don't be evil' was pretty amusing. Removing it really only signifies that they've lost their sense of humour and are now just another faceless megacorp.
The problem has always been the motto was "don't be evil" rather than "don't do evil." Amazing how much evil one can do while thinking one is good.
That's pretty much the same argument people use to claim that, for instance, voting for someone you know to be racist does not make you a racist yourself. It's equally bogus: people support racists by voting for them are racists and people who do evil things are evil people.
But it definitely is something lots of people suffer from -- me included (not the voting-for-racists thing but definitely the doing-probably-bad-things-but-not-being-bad thing).
"That's the best shit-eating grin I've ever seen from a robot hand!", I can finally say without irony.
Tihs ... this ol' baby-boomer missed the whole point on a glancing view. Its no biggy that a robot-hand can key-n-click, which is what appeared to me as the gist of the "I am not a robot" shtick. I guess the grin at the end made me look again, seeing that this time its gonna be a not-begetting-you-are-a-robot, gotcha, captured.
What is the motto of DNA Lounge?
"I've made a terrible mistake."
Subsequently, I suppose.
