Google to Now Begin Flagging Content as "Upsetting-Offensive"

Only a matter of time, really.

ogle is trying to improve the quality of its search results by directing review teams to flag content that might come across as upsetting or offensive.

With the change, content with racial slurs could now get flagged under a new category called "upsetting-offensive." So could content that promotes hate or violence against a specific group of people based on gender, race or other criteria.

While flagging something doesn't directly affect the search results themselves, it's used to tweak the company's software so that better content ranks higher. This approach might, for instance, push down content that is inaccurate or has other questionable attributes, thereby giving prominence to trustworthy sources.

The stuff about "promoting hate and violence" is the foot-in-the-door excuse.

How long do you think it will take them to add a filter, defaulted to 'on', that blocks all such results.

Just in case it couldn't be any more obvious that this dude is a leftist troll. (One time he tweeted the conservatism was 'okay' except for all the 'racism')

I hope Utah feels eternally stupid or propping this guy up. They're holier-than-thou attitude only hurts the causes they think they are the moral champions of.

If these NeverTrumpers had gotten their way, we'd be looking at amnesty for 20 million permanent dem voters, plus more to come through open borders, and Ginsburg 2.0.

113 "Why not? obama kept the dreamer program going even after the Judge threatened the DOJ lawyers."

In the TX Obama DACA EO case the district judge only issued an injunction for TX. The Fifth Circuit then applied it to the Fifth Circuit. It went to SCOTUS and a 4-4 tie, which sent it back to the Fifth Circuit which then made it nationwide.

A big big problem with Trump's EOs is that judges in WA, HI and MD have issued TROs and injunctions that purport to have nationwide application. This should go to SCOTUS to get hammered. It may even go 9-0

That's exactly what the Trump Administration should be looking at.

But if monopolies are supposed to be illegal, we definitely have some monopolies right now that are being completely ignored.

That's what always gets me. People saying "well if Trump has proof he needs to release it." What evidence of behavior of these psychos would lead anyone to believe that if Trump had the information and went "Here it is, all the evidence you'll need," that they would go "Oh well there's the proof, ok we believe you."

If you think that they wouldn't just double down and declare that he had it the evidence faked and you can't trust anything Trump has released, then I would like to know how expensive are the drugs you are on. And if you're willing to share.

205 "So Chevy thinks apple emoije people are their target market?"

It was gut-bustingly funny to watch Government Motors repeatedly using Obama-themed advertising out here in the coveted Commiefornia market, trying to sell the Chevy Volt.

All of the local liberal loons, the very same ones who had loudly insisted that it Was So Too a wise use of the public fisc to bail out GM, wouldn't buy the goddamn car.

Probably the lowest take rate of any promotional campaign in the entire history of the company.

250 They're already doing this at a lesser level. We enable "Restricted Mode" in Youtube because we have kids in the house. In practice, the "restricted" criteria is heavily gamed for political topics.

Videos that promote (or even explain) a conservative viewpoint are often flagged as "unavailable in restricted mode". Many videos from Prager U are restricted as are many Miton Friedman videos. Anything embarrassing to the left (i.e. Hilary's fainting spell) are almost guaranteed to be restricted.

Viewpoints from the left, not so much--as long as they promote "the right things".

Yes, I can switch Restricted mode off, but in the big picture I see this as another foot in the door. When Youtube/Google gets to decide what is appropriate for kids and what isn't, it's another step on the path of corporate censorship of ideas.

Foul people.

I thought so too but I saw an interview with some of the keepers and I'm pretty convinced they're on the up and up. It's a fairly small operation and they're all about the animals. They were hoping to get a few thousand viewers total. The vid going viral caught them by surprise as much as anyone else.

They actually did take it down at first when April didn't give birth right away, but put it back up due to popular demand. Sure they're making money off of this, but I'm convinced that wasn't the original intent after seeing the interviews.

Actually the courts acted exactly correctly on that because executive action on immigration cannot do anything that Congress did not empower. Obam's EO broke the law. Trump's EO does not as Congress empowers the President to do exactly what he did.

Adblocker got purchased by a mysterious shell company that many people speculate was Google.



All of a sudden, ads started coming through once they were bought out.

310 Google has the best search engine code, but they're not trustworthy. Bing is okay for a lot of general stuff but weak on older or technical searches. Most of the rest are hanging off someone else's code, usually Google.

DuckDuckGo is one of the larger independents.

Bing has Chinese ties, BTW. That may or may not affect Western searches, supposedly not.

Google has been getting worse lately, so they may start losing their massive lead.

314 No, the courts should not have tried to stop it in fact. That's Congress' job.

Posted by: filbert at March 16, 2017 04:22 PM (s5o+q)

Actually the courts acted exactly correctly on that because executive action on immigration cannot do anything that Congress did not empower. Obam's EO broke the law. Trump's EO does not as Congress empowers the President to do exactly what he did.

317 Still avoiding politics by spending myself into oblivion on this restaurant...

Bought some real nice silverware at auction the other day, but was outbid on the chairs I wanted.

Stroked a $20K check on a new sign.

Bathrooms and entryway get new floor covering tomorrow and the dining room will be re-carpeted on Monday.

Point of Sale system should be in tomorrow and in operation by the weekend. (Now I'll have a better idea of how quick I'm losing money)

The new menu is ready to go, except my daughter seems to think the prices are too high for the clientele. Heated argument to follow.

Health department is due in on Tuesday to approve the planned changes in the kitchen. I'm sure that will go well (right!).

Architect is working on the expansion plans for the catering kitchen and prep areas. Hopefully, we can get this going soon.

Other than that, everything is rather boring.

318 In the DAPA case, the judge never issued a TRO. He eventually ruled that Obama's actions were unconstitutional which was up held by the Fifth Circuit and deadlocked at the SC.

As far as I'm concerned comparing the two cases is like comparing apples and oranges.

Texas had a direct financial harm with DAPA because they would have to pay welfare benefits to DAPA enrollees.

329 Googles results are heavily jaded. Look at the pages that come up on a search you know a lot about. More noticeable is what's not there you know should be.

It's a bad joke now. I don't want my searches corrupted on a dishonest way to get only the results they want me to have at the top.

That makes it easy for me to use something else. It's completely biased and therefore garbage.

330 278 What does a reading of 9.5 on an "A1C" test mean?


It means that your blood sugar over the past three months have been high. Typical A1C for non-diabetics is under 7. Complications from diabetes start at 8. As a Type I since the age of 4, I've never been as low as I am now, with a 7.1 A1C. As a teenager who thought he was invincible, I had an A1C as high as 13.

I've had 6 eye surgeries to correct diabetic retinopathy. I can't feel my feet. My kidneys leak protein but are doing ok all things considered - oh and I can't feel my feet most of the time (although that's getting better too).

Get the A1C down by eating less carbs. Thats the easiest thing to do. Lay off deserts and sweet drinks. Pass on the pasta and potatoes and only eat rice infrequently.

Your body will thank you.

334 While ostensibly based on prosecutorial discretion (who to deport first), Obama's DACA thing created a whole regime of rights for Dreamers, including work permits and rights to drivers licenses, completely at odds with statutes on the books.

I say "thing" because it wasn't even an EO, just a DHS Jeh Johnson memo.

For openers, even if Obama had the authority to do this, it was "rule making" that didn't comply with the Administrative Procedure Act.

The only way for the Left to win on this was to say that Texas lacked standing, even though the Johnson Memo was ordering Texas to do things like issue drivers licenses.

Be careful on standing, it can work both ways

344 Adblock Plus is AFAIK still good, and it's configurable, so you can weed out the ads that straggle in. Ghostery is good. Privacy Badger does ad blocking and tracking prevention in one plug-in but kind of needs to be trained; it sort of learns as you go, but if you don't intuitively know that you need to unblock assets.notshitsite.com and css.notshitsite.com to view notshitsite.com and have it not look like shit, it can get frustrating. Plus, it's really slow on older computers.
