    At least that would be honest. Sadly, it was probably more /aboringdystopia like, “and here’s an update from our legal counsel. Legal: we’ve reviewed all the company documents, and to remain in compliance we’ve had to update a few things. One change that might get a lot of attention is the removal of ‘dont be evil’ from our mission statement. It is important to understand that this has no reflection on our values or company culture, but if we were to allow such language to remain, it might jeopardize other more specific legal provisions. That sort of thing is fine for startups, but as a real grownup company we have to do things by the book. Yadda yadda yadda.”
