    I find the pre-checked box next to "web forums" very disturbing. I can't say that it comes as a surprise though :'(.

    Good luck filtering. It is still easy hell to by pass these filters. Just use google and you will find the results. Google, Yahoo and other search may block the search terms in the Suggested Search Results. But when you hit Enter, these search results will still appear on Google..

    Censoring illegal stuff isn't going to stop being from finding. If it is out there, people will look for it, even if takes a bit more effort to find it. If you want to find something, you will find it even if it takes a bit more effort to find.
