    Not surprised. Google hasn't been shy regarding their overall "progressive" politics. They are a private company, and are free to take or reject whatever business they like. However, the other things on their unacceptable content list are of the illegal or unsavory activities. Interesting that they choose to lump those who choose to exercise their Constitutional rights in the same group as pedophiles, drug abusers and felons.

    Maybe you should ask them to explain what exactly is "unacceptable" about it.

    I doubt that they invested much effort into reviewing the site. I suspect that they devoted a whopping 15 seconds to glancing at it, and made some assumptions that were not accurate.

    if google is not allowing porno or racial content, we should send kudos to them. it is really appriciable that google is following this self-imposed good on themselves. do no evil.

    1. Or maybe we should expect Google to act like Americans??? They are an American corporation, you know, right?

      I wonder how many employees at Google bitch and whine about the constitution and the bill of rights?

      I wonder how many employees at Google own firearms – because they feel they have the fucking right to protect themselves.

      Well, those fucking bitches ought to start acting like fucking US Citizens instead of U.K. punks.
