Mostly gentlemen, I guess, but who knows: I don't have any access to statistics of that kind. Anyway, here is the gist of the news:
If you’re in the U.S. and trying to search for boobs on Google Images right now, you’re going to have a tougher time. That’s because Google has prevented U.S. users from disabling SafeSearch. And if you want to find NSFW images, you’re going to have to be more specific with your searches.A few remarks to that:
Google users should be familiar with the SafeSearch toolbar at the top right of Image searches. Until recently, that bar allowed users to select MODERATE, STRICT, or OFF. As of right now, those options have been removed from the drop-down menu – but only in the U.S.
- Not only in US, I have to correct the writer (of course I checked immediately, what do you think?). Here too.
- In fact, Google didn't prevent you totally from searching for hardcore stuff. Read the whole article, it's more of a canard than real McCoy.
- And what the heck Googlebots think they are doing to law abiding boob-seeking citizens of the world? Boils my blood to think of it, and I don't even remember why...
