    Read the article. It´s to avoid throwing up porn etc to people who don´t want it.... well that explains lesbian, and I guess people look for bisexual porn? icon_eek.gif It´s not anti gay.

    This isn't scandalous at all. They're censoring explicit instant search results. All you have to do is hit enter and hey presto all your "hot bisexual fisting action with lesbians and boobs" search is right there.

    Exactly. This is for Google instant, it's not censoring at all as the poster above isaidwhat seems to be claiming.

    Yeah, it would be a shame for a Lesbian or a Bisexual person to get what they wanted in an instant. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Seems like they could have implemented this a little better. Coming back and saying we are improving our system all the time doesnt really cut it. They had to know that there are legitimate searches for lesbian and bisexual material. They should have thought a bit longer and figured out how to allow those items to come back instantly .... like, if the item has the word "porn" in it dont show it on instant search. How hard would that have been for GOOGLE, for heaven's sakes?

    Huh? What if the words blacklisted were "straight" or "heterosexual"?

    You have to ask yourself, though, why would they think that all search results for "lesbian" or "bisexual" are explicit. Is it explicit to be straight and heterosexual?
