Google to flag "offensive content":
Google is now directing its review teams to flag content that might come across as upsetting or offensive in search results. The review teams - comprised of contractors known as "quality raters" - already comb through websites and other content to flag questionable items such as pornography. Google added a new category, "upsetting-offensive," in its guidelines for quality raters. For example, content with "racial slurs or extremely offensive terminology" could now get flagged as such.
Frankly, I'd be disappointed if this site didn't suffice to upset and offend the SJW snowflakes. Google and the other big tech companies are setting the stage for some MASSIVE disruption. When they get FoxNewsed, they're going to get FoxNewsed hard.

ya know I think "I am a Rapist" is pretty upsetting... don't you? it should be flagged.

Blacks, jihadis, and other assorted anti-whites are exempt, of course.

If they were really looking lowest-common-denominator offensive things it wouldn't hurt them. But you know that's not what's going to happen.

I'm getting to the point where I almost immediately check out anybody accused of being a "racist, neo-Nazi, homophobic, etc". It's like being on a hate list is the best advertising you can get. If the left is trying to suppress somebody, they must be a voice I need to hear.

It's not like a search engine is a hard thing to build. The hardest part is deciding the criteria for relevance that you sort results by.

Google search has gone to shit over the last decade too. You can't really find new and interesting websites using Google like you used to be able to in the 90s and early 2000s using all these diverse search engines.

That's interesting, because Google used to deny they had "quality raters" at all. I knew a web site owner whose site suddenly disappeared from Google's rankings -- in my opinion, because she was trading links with a lot of other sites, and they decided she was manipulating PageRank and manually put a "flag" on her site to drop its rankings. She pleaded with support people at Google to tell her what the problem was so she could fix it, and they just kept pointing her to their documentation on making your site search engine friendly. They insisted they didn't do what I said they were doing, and of course I had no way to prove it; it just seemed obvious that you'd build a manual override into any automated rankings system. She completely revamped her site, dropped the link trading, and spent tons on SEO companies, to no avail -- the only thing that made sense was that her site was flagged.

Google left "do no evil" behind long ago.

And they can't even manage that. Sad.

My son used to be a quality control analyst (contract) for Google. The remit was to check the results against the search terms, to see if the searcher got the results he was seeking. Before you start they ask if you are okay with checking pr0n searches, and he thought he was... Imagine being asked to check if every depraved bastard's porn search was successful. He thinks he lost his soul on "niggerchink prisn rap". And yes, the searcher did indeed find what he was looking for.

Anyway, this will be preformed by contract piece work from people who stopped caring several years ago. And will be abandoned quietly in a couple of months.

If you offend a SJW at Google, do you get a badge you can display on your web site?

Will there be levels? Offending one SJW could be Bronze. Two could be Silver. Offending the entire team would be Gold.

Also: can I set a preference whereby Google only returns offensive content, or at least sorts it to the top?

9/11 the musical yes its real but none of that downer stuff about the towers

"If you never thought you’d live to see the phrase “9/11 musical,” you’re not alone. Come From Away, which opened on Broadway last night,"

"There is no footage of the towers, no recitation of facts we know all too well, and nary a detailed description of the scene on the ground in New York. This is all for the best. One of the more serious consequence the show addresses, aside from the obvious loss of life, is knee-jerk Islamophobia. "

The globalists lost their major actuator in their control system: MSM news authority

They are trying regain the position of being the only news again by censoring alternative
news. This is doubling down on stupid.

Now that millions are tuning out the fake news and openly mocking it scares the shit
out of them because it may take another generation for the MSM to be effective again if it can
recover at all.

Their billions of dollars of investments in the MSM is now wasted.

The big fear I have is Google has enough cash to effectively close out any "Fox News" competition simply by purchasing the entire operation, making everyone sign non-compete clauses in the buyout and silencing them with a boatload of cash. Lawfare against the recalient to tie up their time and resources, and costing up to foreign governments to get competition closed down there.

Warfare generally does go to those with larger battalions and the better logistical setup, and companies like Google, Apple, Microsoft and so on are certainly standing astride the internet with their dragons hoards of cash.

Perhaps I am too pessimistic (and Jerry Pournelle reminds us despair is a mortal sin), but I'm not seeing the way forward yet. Gab.ai, Brave and Infogalactic are indeed great initiatives, and I certainly try to make a point of promoting them, but what is that next step.....
