In Response To: Mr. Giraffe, Google & Me.... (MaaMaw)
Please let us know what you find out. I mean if in fact Google looks at "tool tips" as keyword spam/hidden text or not.
I hope that's not the case as it would be yet one more way Google dictates to the world how websites should be built.
PS. I wonder when Google will be so powerful that they will force all websites to be built the same and look exactly the same. Afterall, that would make it really easy for them to sort through and index sites, wouldn't it? And it would make it all easier for everyone. Google just needs to build a template for us and allow us all to download it. Then we can just input it into our editors and ad our content. Better yet, why don't they just have Matt Cutts make all of our websites for us? It would just make it easier for all of us if Google would just tell us how to think, how to act, how to build sites, what to do, what to eat, how to act in public, how ot type, how to write, where to think, how to eat, etc. Long live Google! I think they need to take over the world. Afterall, who needs individuality? It's just an outdated concept, right?

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
