How did we let the Web get to this point. All I wanted to do was read this blog post.

@loke I think it's a bigger problem, but they're both bad.

@joshsharp
The main problem, in my opinion, is the usurpation of other people's creation by a larger entity. This is prevalent all over the Internet, and we've become so used to it that we only really notice it when it's monetised in a more outrageous way than what the others do.

The blocking of search engines from Facebook is another manifestation of the same underlying issue.

@loke agreed, although I think that once you notice it you continue to notice it everywhere. Depends who you mean by "we" I guess.
