I really can drop Google from THE index. By “the” index, I mean from Foursquare‘s index. Foursquare gave me “superuser” rights as a way for me to update RustyBrick’s information on their system. But that also gave me full rights to update any venue’s information on Foursquare, including Google NYC, which I have been to a few times.
Of course, I won’t do that, but if I wanted to, I can move Google NYC to New Jersey. I could change their Twitter ID to mine. Or even mark them as being out of business. I can do a bunch of evil things. Of course, I would never do that, which is maybe why I have superuser access. But to prove it to you, here is a screen capture:
So it is a good thing that I am not evil.
Actually, it seems like they do trust me and others with level one superuser access.
