[real-eyes] wow has anyone seen this? google vs Scroogle

I just tried using Scroogle  and got this message.





Forbidden
 so sorry...
Google is temporarily blocking this Scroogle server. 

Please wait ten minutes before trying again. 

Yes, Scroogle is upset with Google.
    1. Google handles 1 billion searches per day, while Scroogle handles 
350,000 searches per day. This means that Scroogle is 0.035 percent of Google's 
load. 

    2. Google uses 900,000 servers, while Scroogle leases just six low-end 
dedicated servers. 

    3. Google has billions and billions of dollars in the bank, while Scroogle 
is a recognized public charity and survives on modest donations averaging $43 
per day. 

    4. For more than seven years, Scroogle has always made serious efforts to 
detect and block any and all bots. Almost every Scroogle searcher is a live 
person clicking on a mouse. Yet Google treats Scroogle like a bot because they 
see the traffic from our six IP addresses as higher than normal. Searching 
Google with a bot is against Google's terms of service, but Scroogle users are 
not bots. 



    Is it "Terms of Service" for Google, or is it "Terms of Monopoly"? 

    You can tell the Antitrust Division what you think about Google.
