What similarity exists between Matt Drudge of drudgereport.com and David
Gibbs of Midrange?

This NY Times article at

insight on Midrange forums continue to attract high numbers of IBM i
professionals, despite the proliferation of fancy forums at sites like
LinkedIn, Facebook, SystemiNetwork, Itjungle, COMMON, etc.
drudgereport.com and midrange.com both keep things pretty simple, just leave you alone with what you want to do. I think Google leapfrogged ahead that way, just gave you one simple web page with a lonely search argument bar, fed up the results and on the side gave you some sponsored links that related to the words.

Except now Google is started to game their own system, in part they have to and in part they're using the "have to" to cover for the "want to", but their sophisticated users are savvy to that and would probably gravitate to a better alternative.
