From Simon Blake’s blog:
In November I posted a comment saying I was writing to google to ask why clitoris was banned from in their safe search option when penis and scrotum were not. Last week someone called to say it was a technical issue and they were going to look into it. He agreed to contact me when it was sorted. I will keep you informed.
Three cheers for Simon for following up on this. But a “technical issue” strikes me as an odd way to characterize Google’s decision to include “clitoris” on a list of SafeSearch banned words that also includes “nude’, ‘naked’, and ‘bastard’.
Of course maybe it is a technical issue. After all, the mere misplacement of a ‘/’ caused Google to classify every page on the World Wide Web as malware. Here’s hoping Google can get its bugs ironed out. If they do, maybe people will be able to use Google to find out the [clitoris] vs. [penis] story started right here on this blog.
