The privacy violator of the web is not Google, it's Facebook.

Both articles have comment sections that don't use Facebooks commenting system, unlike Techcrunch's

and

It would be easy for Facebook to censor the comments directed against it self or penalize users (members) in other ways, openly or stealthily (ok, never mind).

Note to those putting content out: If you value free speech, don't use the FB commenting system.
