Google Autofill File Sharing Site Suggestions

Postby sunnyd » Thu Nov 24, 2011 11:47 am

Lately, I have seen several more hyped news articles about how Google is censoring file sharing sites, blacklisting them, etc.

This is NOT new news. Google has been doing this since January, they don't autofill the search box for you for some sites, and they added a few more. All you have to do is type out the full name, hit enter, and the same suggestions are there. It's not hard to type the whole name. :wink:

Google has been fighting with/about censorship and trying to find the happy medium to make the copyright holders happy, and they would much prefer to not have to censor the content index. So they don't autofill the suggestion, it's NOT a big deal imo. They are not blocking results, they are merely not suggesting them to get the heat off of themselves. I am not sure why so many journalists lately think this has come about all of a sudden, or that it's new news, it isn't. :roll:
