    I beg to differ – this does not constitute censorship. The search terms can still be used. I, for one, don&#39;t wish my 11 year old to be prompted with porn terms when using Google. <br /><br />If Google were eliminating the ability to search using these terms, that might resemble censorship by one company, though unless government-required or industry-wide, it is not truly censorship. <br />

  2. Thanks so much for the comment.<br /><br />I wasn&#39;t concentrating on the pornography but on the other areas: the hate speech and the &quot;piracy&quot;. These are topics that deal much more closely with a traditional issue of librarianship: selection.<br /><br />Would we/should we <b>not</b> add materials to our collections just because they may be considered by some to be &quot;hate&quot;
