ask.com is the only search engine to recognize memorial day.
it really pisses me off that google and yahoo both decorate their banners for every holiday but veterans and memorial day. i’m never using those search engines again, and want to urge everyone else to not use them either.
go to each site, see for yourself
I checked the front page and didn’t find a memorial day Atomic Dog–I’m never coming back.
Wikipedia, the firefox homepage, and microsoft.com failed to acknowledge the holiday as well. Facebook and Myspace totally ignored it. (Actually, I’ve quit microsoft already)
Fuck the internet, I’m done.
My dad didn’t tell me happy memorial day, I’m not speaking to him.
Stupid analogies. The OP is right. Google and Yahoo recognize every major and minor holiday with creative banners on the title page.
It is very strange they did not do anything for Memorial Day.[/quote]
I think someone who has a problem with that should write to google and point out that they overlooked the holiday. Chances are it wouldnt be a big deal and they would make note of it to do something next year.
Either that, or, ya know… suggest boycotting the search engines.
