    I’ve just noticed that Google now automatically filters my searches, and does not allow me to remove the filter. Apparently this has been going on for a while, but I only discoverd today I can no longer change the setting to “off”.

    I know I can use other search engines, but this is the sort of thing that really annoys me.

    Any dictator can cloak censorship up as “safety”.

    Boycott Google until it rejoins the civilized world.

    I’ve tried the US, UK and German Google sites and they’re all being heavily censored.

    For some reason, the Mexican site

    http://www.google.com.mx/

    still allows you to turn safesearch off…

    Maybe the Mexicans are not worth censoring?


  • You can turn safe search off, that’s not changed…how you get to it is.  Google only censors in a couple of countries (China, for instance), the US and Canada aren’t one of them.

    If you are being outright blocked, then quit looking up porn while at work.  And if you don’t know how to turn off safe search (which is on by default and should be - and when you reset your browser or update it, it can revert back to default settings sometimes), then just google it.

    Quit crying conspiracy when it’s just a matter of being ignorant to the problem.  And fighting that ignorance is the only way we will be able to wrest control from the reptilian shapeshifter overlords.

    Hmm,

    If you stop searching for “how to make BOMBS in your basement.”  That might un-censor your google searches.

    But now the choice of what I find on Google is made by them, I want to start making bombs…

    Okay, I know you love to troll and have a good time, and I hate to feed that, but this really made me chuckle a little!
