I use Google as a verb, Google is the only search engine I use, so as such I think that the word is fine in my volcabulary...Good thing Yahoo didn't get as big as google, I would hate to say that I am Yahooing something, that is just corney

Example: "I googled him on Yahoo and he seems pretty interesting."

If anyone said that to me I would just blankly stare at them and then slap them... really..... really... hard!

Theres nothing really really wrong about using google as a verb, we all do it, I mean it's like christians 'taking the lords name in veign'. You show me a christian that has never said "God damnit" and I'll... slap them too!

We have had a large discussion about this in the Googlism Debate forum on the old forums but I'm not sure where it has gone to or what the outcome was.

I think, that third commandment is about "not use "googling" as a synonym for searching", not about "don`t say the word".

After all, "to google something" means to search it through Google. Not through anything else.
