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.

I'm 51 years old and have chosen to not have children

Lets, see, you have no children, for whatever reason

Two reasons:

1. I don't like them.
2. I realize that, like you, I would not be willing to spend the necessary to supervise them.

, yet you try to tell those who have children how to edutate{sic} them.

Because you're doing a very poor job on your own. I also don't have houseplants, but that doesn't mean I don't know how to care for them.

The Internet was not created as an automated babysitter

It wasn't created exclusively for porn eather{sic}, so? what's your point.

Straw man. I never suggested that it was "exclusively for porn." But that's one thing that is on it and it's stupid to let your kids prowl around on it if you don't want them to see porn.

You would not let your kids 'poke around' an unsorted warehouse of magazines

I don't

Well, that's what the Internet is: and unsorted warehouse of content.

so why would you let your child 'poke around' on the Internet?

Because the internet is not excusive{sic} for porn,

And the hypothetical magazine warehouse is not exclusively for porn.

I want Google to make it hard to find content aimed at children, because I don't want to see that kind of content. That's a perfect analogy to your position.

is for information and education, but, nobody can't avoid the improper use of it, common sense, have you hear{sic} of it?

Who the **** are you to dictate what is "improper use of [the Internet"?

No, it is not for "education." Highways are not "for education" even though school buses run on them. Your argument is utter BS. The Internet was created by the U.S. Department of Defense for military purposes.

As far as education goes, get some. Your writing makes it appear that you are borderline illiterate.
