Google's mission statement: "to organize the world‘s information and make it universally accessible and useful". No where in there does it say it is Google's job to filter out what the US government has deemed illegal this month. While in theory it should be ok for illegal content to be blocked ( such as child pornography), there are too many gray areas to make this automatic. Not to mention that from this one article it seems as though the filtering method is arbitrary. I applaud their efforts to filter out sites that are not authenticated. I applaud their efforts to attempt to give top search results to original content, but this is toeing the line of what I consider unacceptable.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:
