First of all, I know it all will sound really mad. But the facts can't lie.
Two days ago miniBB was removed from Wikipedia. The reason of deletion is: Seemingly non-notable software. No coverage in reliable independent sources that I can see.
Who does see that way? Who knows. The person named "FASTILY". Two days ago the same process was initiated by the person named "Mailer Diablo". Actually we don't know those persons real names. We don't know their faces. We know nothing about them. The #1 source of information on Earth with the big intention to trust it, appearing first in any search results
, is ruled by the unknown anonymous source.Calling the branding software, which is the only forum software so far under a registered trademark, which is developed during almost 10 years, and which is used on thousands, if not millions, websites around, non-notable???
Obviously, these persons haven't tried any search engine, including worlds favorite Google, to check references. Obviously, with this step Wikipedia confirms its unreliable status as an information resource. Obviously, we don't need any references from such website anymore.
Another assumption of why miniBB can't be found in Google, is that Google intentionally lowers our websites ranks. It counts only about 500,000 of references of miniBB keyword, at the time their closest competitor, Yahoo, shows about 3,660,000 results. If you search for "miniBB" in Google, you will find reference to the original www.minibb.com
only on the 6th or 7th results page.
Why is this happening? Google doesn't like free mind theories like this
. Also their service is regulated by those who pays them.
Software giants do not need a stable program which just works. They are developing bugs and mistakes in their software all the time, because the main goal of programmers and their bosses is money and not an idea. Nobody is interested to install the program and run it for years with no changes. And especially now, when we released the Compiler
, and miniBB made a step to something big and seriously stable, it is obvious, that we are going more and more under attack of competitors.
Sooner or later, when you search Google, you will find pre-paid results even if they won't be announced that way. Sooner or later, Google will owe your life. Use their browser, and you will be monitored in terms websites you watch and time you spend on them. Use their Adsense, and you will be monitored on how much money you earn. When you drive in a car which uses GPS navigator connected to Google maps, your speed and destination are monitored. Whatever you use from Google, you are monitored.
And if you are monitored, you can be programmed.
We've been requesting reconsideration in Google for our domain few times, with no result or response. Obviously, now is the time to fight more windmills. This project was a Don Quixote
initially. Now I must say, we don't have to care about big daddies anymore.
Like any other inventors in the human race history, it appears that we must share the same fortune. The fortune of not being known because not having enough of funds to wash brains.
Now we all can conclude that Internet becomes the most untrusted source of information the human race ever had.
For little projects like miniBB, which are really
related to the exchanging free information with no control, it is very difficult to survive in this giant can of trash, if you are trying to be honest and accurate, not a selfish little king of your own room.
The most important question is that there is no sense to survive in it. When you sit hours without movement and stare in the same letters on the monitor, this process obviously starts washing your brain. You are being programmed. Just now. Even if the only you read is this..
For many months I was personally rethinking my future, and unfortunately, I am supposed to conclude that I have related too much time to computers and I am not able to re-learn in any other area, even if I would try to. I am already a slave of information technology
, which will eat or kill me, sooner or later. All I can do, is nothing.
Most probably, it's the proper moment to ask our community, if our forum software project needs further development. I guess, Google, Facebook, Twitter and Wikipedia will make everybody happy in the closest ten years, at least. You don't need personal programs and personal forums anymore. Just join the big can of trash, and it will add colors to your life.
Do you agree?.. ;-)
