Did you realize that the cost of the reaction is almost 10 million times the cost of organizing it? If x = half a million or 0.5 x 10^6 and y= 3.3 Trillion or 3.3 x 10^12, then y/x= 6.6 X 10^6 or almost 7 million times and by the time the calculations are revised it will be closer to, or beyond, 10 million times the cost to those guys- talk about leverage.


Fighting Fire With Fire: Google Bombing Jessica Valenti

Here is a link that gives you an idea of what Jessica Valenti thinks- based on her own words and writings.
