This link was of great interest


This quote particularly caught my eye.

"These websites are being told to clean up their websites - or else."

I'm sorry, but who do they think they are? They have blacklisted Google as an offender of 'supplying' 'vulgar material. Google supplies nothing, but the results of a search, therefore Google in my opinion should not be deemed the culprit, more so the people who create these websites in the first place and also the people searching for them in the first place.
However they have not defined what they consider 'vulgar'. Apart from a line about suggestive poses. Its truely amazing how a nation is trying so hard to 'control' something as expansive as the internet.
