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.

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?

I honestly think that if the Internet started to isolate themselves in regional islands with limited cultural connexions, so as to better please each country's moral guardians, something of value would have been lost... Be it only because for some, the Internet has been a way to escape the arbitrary reach of said guardians so far.

Then again, perhaps it would indeed be a more sensible option than the current way of entrusting the US to control the core components of the internet and screaming foul when it goes wrong.
