Why do I need to join Scribd to get a PDF of Google's "public policy" comments. Haven't you folks heard of HTML?
This business of being required to have a facebook account in order to download scribd pdfs is absurd.I deliberately chose not to ever get a facebook account because I _don't want to join a 'social network'.The first method of protecting one's privacy is simply to not though out one's life for potentially everyone to see.Given that the pdf involved is a public policy response to a call for comment by a government organization about a potential policy change, forcing membership to a private enterprise is ... tacky to say the least and unbearably repugnant.
If you follow the link you can view a fullscreen version of the pdf in question. No membership required. So what, exactly, is the problem?
"charging for content and availability on Google are not mutually exclusive."when will the media understand this. I feel like old media feels itself loosing its hold and so it is lashing out at every possible threat. Businesses are supposed to be able to change and adapt. I guess it is difficult when you are 200 years set in your ways. Keep up the good work, Google.

The small businesses are getting ignored in these issues, especially when looking for small business loans or financing.The big corporations don’t seem to have an issue raising money by selling bonds, big bank loans. Small business loans aren’t getting approved that’s why so many are looking to business cash advances to leverage their credit card receipts.Charles BarattaCo-Owner Express Funding Group
