Google says it’s working to fix a bug in Google Suggest that is blocking search suggestions related to Islam. As The Next Web has reported, typing Islam is into Google shows no terms from Google Suggest.

But replace Islam with a number of other major religions — such as Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, etc. — and Google Suggest shows a variety of terms, including many negative ones like … is a lie, is false, is a cult, etc. The discrepancy between how these religions are portrayed and the lack of suggested terms for Islam is led some to accuse Google of favoritism.

Not so, Google says. A spokesperson tells us: “This is a bug and we’re working to fix it as quickly as we can.”

Does the same in Spanish Google too!

Oh no wait, in Spanish it has two suggestions: Islam is a threat and Islam is a religion. Guess which one's first on the list

you type it up to the 'i' in is and it works (Islam in, and then various countries come up). But you add the S and it stops recognizing it?

you used to be able to type 'what are these s' and it would continue: 'trawberries doing on my nipples i need them for fruit salad' in the predicted search thing

EDIT: satanism is:
good
wrong
a sin against which commandment
a joke
it real
bullshit


better results than most religions

*Gordon Brown*

I followed the "is my shepherd one". Weird.

'Gordon Brown is my shepherd, I shall not work.
He leadeth me beside the still factories.

He restoreth my faith in the political opposition.

He guideth me in the path of unemployment.

Yea, though I wait for my dole,
I own the bank that refuses me.

He has annointed my income with taxes,
My expenses runneth over my pay.

Surely poverty and hard times will follow me all the days of his term.

From hence forth, we will live all the days of our lives in a rented home with an overseas landlord.

I am glad I am British,
I am glad I am free,

But I wish I were a dog, and our Prime Minister were a tree!'.

That's why they called it a BUG.

I actually had an argument with an American on here about soldiers being murderers, and he said (Not paraphrasing here) that I was too ignorant for him to try to force his belief on me. These soldiers are fighting for "freedom", but he can justify forcing a belief on someone The irony was lost on him.
That's essentially how the rest of the world views Americans.

That's a messed up headline.


And cowardliness? How can they not know the word "cowardice"?


And this is retarded. I wonder if cowardice is the actual reason.
