One of the examples cited by Google for what it now considers “upsetting-offensive” content that will be subject to flagging, de-listing and possible censorship is a website that describes the religion of Islam as “intolerant.”
“The new “upsetting-offensive” flag instructs quality raters to “flag to all web results that contain upsetting or offensive content from the perspective of users in your locale, even if the result satisfies the user intent,” according to the report.
SearchEngineLand.com, which originally broke the story, features an example of what would be buried if a user searched for the term “Islam” – an article entitled Proof that Islam is Evil, Violent, and Intolerant- Straight From the Koran by Jan Morgan, a public speaker and award-winning journalist who regularly appears on Fox News and has appeared on CNN.
