A few months ago the great Google god thundered wrath in my direction, declaring a portion of my innocuous website byGosh.com to be hate speech. Google demanded that I remove ads from Huckleberry Finn. I was amused that anyone would find Mark Twain’s masterpiece to be hateful, but I can understand why Google might not want its ads there, and I had no objection to removing them. In spite of my immediate compliance, Google wreaked terrible vengeance upon me, taking secret measures that destroyed 80% of my traffic and effectively demonetized my entire site.
Google god wrath redoux: Two days ago, I received another email from Google, this time claiming that my posting of Tom Sawyer constitutes illegal file sharing. This is obvious nonsense, as Tom Sawyer has been public domain for many decades.
