Google tightens controls on pornography
So Google has again changed how its SafeSearch explicit content blocking for images works. I was reading this article by Jennifer O’Mahony from The Telegraph about it and my reaction was pretty much “yeah whatever.”
Then I got to this part:
Outraged users took to social networks to claim the change to Google amounted to censorship, with the topic pushed onto the front page of Reddit after being “upvoted” by users. Discussions of how to get around the restrictions ran to hundreds of comments.
“You can take away our privacy, but if you mess with porn, the internet is going to be MAD,” wrote user okeman.
“What is this? communism?! BRING BACK THE PORN!” added user Fake_Cakeday.
Ms. O’Mahony, I am terribly sorry you had to write this. I feel for you.
