Google A change to anything related to Google Search - the product so many of us rely on - is never going to go by unnotoced. This time around, Google has altered Image Search for US users to alter the way it handles that ever so important aspect of the web - adult content.

If the worst you find on the Internet with SafeSearch off are merely unclothed people, you're running really boring searches. :-)

In any event, Google's decision strikes me as more of a business decision that censorship. People vote with their feet more than their ballots; I presume Google is responding to their market. If not, they'll be irrelevant soon anyway. Or should be.

Just curious (and I don't intend to be passive/aggressive here): As I don't expect the Dutch to adjust to American norms, why do you seem to expect Americans to adjust to yours? Perhaps Europeans should rally behind a Eurocentric search engine that better fits your culture(s) instead of trying to tailor an American company toward that end?
