Getting it down on `paper`

Google search results and the Santorum problem

Dear Google: Please include a “taboo” filter and down-weight results that fall into the taboo category, such as that which relates the the 2012 US Republican candidate Rick Santorum. In other words, down-weight results that are risky given the socio-economic status of the current user, or base it on the current region, or current country of an unidentified user. Why? Well, statistics, of course! Let the user select the option to disable “safe search.” Why? So that we all don’t get censored for nothing. Why? Because idiots are idiots.
