A Coincidence I'm sure

For the last week when­ever I’ve attempted to go to Lucianne​.com a con­ser­v­a­tive news site my Google has been scream­ing bloody mur­der warn­ing me of dire consequences.

Today when I tried to go there was no such warn­ing, con­sid­er­ing the for­mat of the pre­vi­ous warn­ing I was quite sur­prised, until I started check­ing out the articles.

Appar­ently yes­ter­day the site News­busters reported on this imply­ing that this was due to Google’s well know liberalism.

And lo and behold less than 24 hours later no blocks! I pre­sume that Google no longer con­sid­ers this site unsafe and that the fact that it block was reported on was just a coincidence.

You might remem­ber just a week or so ago when Glenn linked to the reg­is­ters story on Google stat­ing that google staff will pick and choose what appears in search results. A per­son work­ing at google wrote him call­ing the Reg­istry trash and deny­ing it.

I won­der if he will send Glenn a fol­low up mail on this one?

Now in the end you still need to be care­ful, there are plenty of sources for news on the net and its a lot eas­ier to pre­vent an infec­tion that to remove one but it is amaz­ing that I’m not get­ting that warn­ing anymore.

For the last week whenever I’ve attempted to go to Lucianne.com a conservative news site my Google has been screaming bloody murder warning me of dire consequences.

Today when I tried to go there was no such warning, considering the format of the previous warning I was quite surprised, until I started checking out the articles.

Apparently yesterday the site Newsbusters reported on this implying that this was due to Google’s well know liberalism.

And lo and behold less than 24 hours later no blocks! I presume that Google no longer considers this site unsafe and that the fact that it block was reported on was just a coincidence.

You might remember just a week or so ago when Glenn linked to the registers story on Google stating that google staff will pick and choose what appears in search results. A person working at google wrote him calling the Registry trash and denying it.

I wonder if he will send Glenn a follow up mail on this one?

Now in the end you still need to be careful, there are plenty of sources for news on the net and its a lot easier to prevent an infection that to remove one but it is amazing that I’m not getting that warning anymore.
