Re: Professional searching available

"team work and increase the fees" is called a cartel kinda like Opec! It is also called "Price Fixing" which is illegal in most countries for the poor and weak, but not for the big and rich as they can afford to hire someone to lobby (bribe) the government.

Re: Professional searching available

There's a name for that... I learned about it in my business class...

I just looked it up in the text book and couldn't find it... but it's something like unfair business practices.  The idea is two or more monopolies work in conjunction to make more money.

hold on ... i know about cartel laws and that they are not applyed correctly in a wide field of markets (especially in electronics/comm.software) ... i wanted to offer a solution that do not include the 2 words "declare war", that is about some exponents worse than any cartel would be

it is of course not building cartels, if 2 people or 2 companies join their knowledge and business and found a bigger company --- and this can mean that the product that is sold on the market is worth more, because the quality is much higher

cartel laws are valid, if you have the same product and you make with your competitors on the market a price that all competitors then will make target for transactions

Re: Professional searching available

I've already mailed the DOJ, it smells cartel long way, probably is rasat in it too, I've never trusted the finns big_smile

Heck, even if /rasat/Dusty/dp were a search cartel they still face googles 100.000+ linux servers. I don't think Dustys dial up and dp's laptop would scare them too much. wink Maybe it's rasat that's in charge of the hardware! Hmmm the conspiracy theories......

I think its a good idea to have few members from Sweden if its true what sarah31 said: they live in a cardboard box. When they make too much noise we can always close the lid. smile
There is also another advantage when the lid is closed, the swiss chocolate can be used for some other countries.

he looks not that rich to be a cartel-member - look at the shoes

the true cartel members look more rich, as they are criminals on a high level :-)
