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.

Point stands. I don't care if my kid finds pictures of naked men or women. Big whoop.

I find violence a far bigger issue.


Then presumably you should be giving a cautious welcome to the updated image search. It's trivially easy to find content that qualifies as both pornographic *and* graphically violent.

I'll take your word for it.

But that's like arguing that people who dislike fast cars should rejoice about the Google porn filtering because it's trivially easy to find nude women posing with fast cars.

No, it's not. It's not like that at all.

If you're too stupid to see the distinction, content filters are almost certainly the least of your worries.
