The Google thread
In a serious move, Google is signaling that it will begin scrubbing its search results based on adherence to leftist dogma. Considering that most of you found me, or a blog related to me, through a search on game or travel, this will make it harder for men to find us.

Quote: Google is trying to improve the quality of its search results by directing review teams to flag content that might come across as upsetting or offensive.

With the change, content with racial slurs could now get flagged under a new category called "upsetting-offensive." So could content that promotes hate or violence against a specific group of people based on gender, race or other criteria.

RE: Google adds tool to flag 'offensive' search results
Thus the bar for something to qualify as thoughtcrime has been lowered about five rungs down from "hateful" to merely "upsetting".

RE: Google adds tool to flag 'offensive' search results
Well, there's always Bing, right?
The weird thing about censorship is that the avowed targets are rarely if ever affected by it; either the Comstockian efforts miss it completely, the censors let the worst offenses pass, or the ideas find new avenues and survive. Censorship of this sort is really just Google announcing to the world, 'I'm impotent as Hugh Hefner, but I'll buy a motorbike and act tough so nobody believes it.'
If print was the medium for ideas deemed offensive and a magazine or publishing house refused to give you a channel? Hell, start a zine.
While the internet is the medium, Bing, Gab.ai, Vimeo etc are going to offer stiff competition and will welcome traffic that the mainstream sites don't allow. Google is going to do a Twitter-crash.

And there's going to be a market for offensive truths, because every area of opnion is getting more and more polarised-not just politics, religion and sex, but medicine, business, language, law.

RE: Google adds tool to flag 'offensive' search results
So it just gets a flag/label? That will just drive kids towards that kinda stuff. Anything I was told I shouldn't look at as a kid just made me more curious. People like the "forbidden fruit".

Besides, this is only gonna hurt Google. The next step is them outright censoring or banning content which will drive users elsewhere. I hate to use that old hippie saying but...."you can't ban ideas man!"

Wonder how many visa slaves make up their "review teams." This isn't as bad as it seems at least, more like a waste of money and man hours. Sounds like they are just pandering to the trigger warning crowd. I'm confident that when they nefariously start banning sites, it won't be publicized.

As I understand the article this pertains to Google's internal "content reviewers", and their deeming something offensive will have the effect of pushing it way down the line in the search reaults. So, some Berkeley grad who landed their "dream job" at Google will come across a writeup on how to maximize your notches during a layover in Belgrade (misogynist and rapey), or how to get to a body weight bench press (toxic masculinity), how to reload your own .30-06 (only a lone wolf white nationalist would think of doing this), or discussing the challenges faced by inner city youth raised by single mothers (white privilege/racist dog whistle), and flag it as potentially triggering, thereby moving down further from the top search hits that sufficiently toe the party line. It all takes place behind the scenes, and there won't be any indication that something has been deemed deplorable to 2017's sensibilities.

Just my read as a completely non-technologically inclined layman.

RE: Google adds tool to flag 'offensive' search results
Well, it's starting to happen:

Banks join queue of advertisers ditching Google

I doubt it'll mean much action is taken against genuine extremists, because social media in general is pretty lazy about that (how many ISIS-controlled Twitter accounts, again?) but people may realise that Google's business model is not optimal for everyone, as indeed it's not. Free speech that you can't sell ad space in
is never going to be an option for Google, and now that they've shown that they can't be trusted to police their own pages, conventional businesses and non-mainstream publishers will take their content elsewhere.

All these companies coming out and censoring content and treating their users like 5 year olds are just making it easier for their replacements to come along and take their spot.

Not able to speak your mind on Twitter anymore? Check out Gab.ai. Reddit censoring like crazy? Check out Voat.co. Not able to find the content you are looking for on Google anymore? A new player will come along.

You can only nanny your users so much before a replacement will come along.

RE: The Google thread
Google is essentially a law enforcement agency. They don't fight or protest subpoenas.

Quote:The warrants, which draw on an enormous Google database employees call Sensorvault, turn the business of tracking cellphone users’ locations into a digital dragnet for law enforcement. In an era of ubiquitous data gathering by tech companies, it is just the latest example of how personal information — where you go, who your friends are, what you read, eat and watch, and when you do it — is being used for purposes many people never expected. As privacy concerns have mounted among consumers, policymakers and regulators, tech companies have come under intensifying scrutiny over their data collection practices.

So far as Facebook is concerned, that actually is the case. I don't use Facebook, and I don't direct others to it. My life is a shitload simpler as a result. I don't work in a job that requires a Facebook account, and I wouldn't apply for any job that asks or even hints that it looks at your Facebook page as part of the selection process.

With Google it's a bit harder obviously, but the good news is that this does nothing but damage to Google in the long run, because it increasingly opens the way for competitors. Discrimination is its own punishment, as Milton Friedman said, and this is discrimination. Those who are on the normie farm are likely to stay there until they get burned by Normie Inc., and once they are, they'll go looking for the forbidden fruit whether it's on Google or elsewhere.

If these 'private companies' continue to grow their monopolies and push further into being almost compulsory to use for Joe citizen with support of government/authority. Its only a matter of time before a banning from one of these corporate giants for stepping outside the programmed correct speak/behaviour seriously impinges on your life.

DuckDuckGo is already pretty good. Noticeably different results from Google in "red pill adjacent" areas.

They're not very good at it then as I buy too much shit off Amazon and a few other places and that page says I have no purchases.

Are you seeing Amazon there?

Could also be that if you deleted the order confirmation email associated with the purchase, it will no longer show up in this list?

Google just deplatformed Huawei off of Android and they are working with the PRC on a search engine. If they will do that then could there be a possible future where they start threatening hosting sites if they host websites like Roosh?

Say you cant use google in your services if you dont remove certain sites?
