Google’s SafeSearch has been castigated by CNN (among others) for being too extreme. Scunthorpians have long memories, full of painful recollections of mid-90s NetNannying blocking any side mentioning the town’s name. The CNN article goes on to say:

The word “girls” also tends to lead SafeSearch astray. It incorrectly blocks… TheCalicoGirls.com, a Web site devoted to cat poetry.

Really? Suddenly I see SafeSearch in a new, favourable light. Does it also block pictures of white people with dreadlocks, or henna tattoos?
