g00gle to sock: “We’re not sockworthy”

Gewgle: It’s not you, it’s me.

Sock: It’s not you, it’s me? [WTF!] You’re giving me the ‘It’s not you, it’s me’ routine? I invented ‘It’s not you, it’s me.’ Nobody tells me it’s them, not me. If it’s anybody, it’s me.

Gooooogle:Alright, Sock, it’s you.

Sock:You’re damn right it’s me.

Gurgle:Look, I was just trying to….

Sock:I know what you were trying to do. Nobody does it better than me.

Google:Well I’m sure you do it very well.

Sock:Yes, well, unfortunately you’ll never get the chance to find out.

Hi Emilie

What does "inappropriate language" mean? How is appropriateness determined, and by whom, using what criteria[?] I don't really care if Google wants business I could generate or not, but I would appreciate a clue.
