Helium Knowledge is supposed to be a blog. But the more I am on the site, it seems as though I am on a “Google assignment”. Part of the Helium “blog” is to answer questions. Thus, I am constrained to Google “AL Nasir”, “Alfarabi” and a myriad of unexciting dead old Indian philosophers. As if that were not enough “cruel and unusual punishment”, I had to answer the question “Why?”. (I have no idea – why What? , it was just Why?) How I figured out the answer to Why still eludes me.
When you get direct Who Is questions, you do get the urge to be humorous at times, to escape the moronic air. Thus, I decided that Alfarabi must have invented the asparagus and Nasir is a nasal spray! Well, Nasir is indeed a nasal spray, by the way.
The other day though while I was reading a question, I was struck by the most racist question — Why do you hate the French or are they just funny? And though Helium Knowledge does pay at least a dollar for engaging in asking and replying to either bizarre or weird questions, I wondered why such a hate question was allowed despite the clarity of Adsense Google rules that there be no direct racist or hate entries.
The fact about Helium Knowledge is that it seems that it is run by a “little group” who made a deal with Adsense and other advertisers. They are “chummy” to members of an obviously “select group” who would swear they all got their 25 bucks last month, yet, most of those who swear to that are those “old members” who are planted in the community. Thus, when I did write the administration about the question, I was ignored. Why? Because the question was written by a “close chum” of Helium who seems to have the part-time job of helping new members.
If there is anything that is distasteful about it, aside from the racism and the chummy-like connections of an inner core of old-time bloggers, it is the intellectual dishonesty. While we are bashed for saying that Nasir was a nasal spray and Alfarabi invented the asparagus, we can’t bash them back for blatantly expressing their hate for the French people.
I mean, shouldn’t fair be fair? But yes, as I say — they do pay because they do report some 11,000 plus bloggers, who are predominantly from India, despite Helium claiming it’s a “global site” run in the USA. Thus, we are consigned to Google for Indian noodles, highest-paying jobs in India, King Ravana, and more BS that does pay, I think!
