    From Google itself

    Here's how to disable SafeSearch:

    Visit the Google Preferences page.
    In the "SafeSearch Filtering" section, select Do not filter my search results.
    Click Save Preferences.
    So how is it mandatory?

    No, it isn't.

    Google seems to have stricter one word searches but I've still been able to find plenty of NSFW results.

    Yes, IT IS.

    that section of the preference page now only has
    SafeSearch filters

    Turn on SafeSearch to filter sexually explicit content from your search results.
    Filter explicit results Lock SafeSearch
    But you don't get explicit results, REGARDLESS of if you have the box checked or not.
    It is now moderate or full, no off, off is gone, it is an ex-option.

    And ok, one words are out, two words are in, the more specific you get, the easier it is to work around a filter.
    How long until they take that workaround data, and use it to step up the filter, hmm?

    You totally do get explicit results. I said 1 word searches have stricter results, but that doesn't me you can't get creative.

    TOTALLY NSFW

    Register to see the NSFW content

    Turn on SafeSearch to filter sexually explicit content from your search results.
    So keep it turned off. And use more than one word. Hurr durrr

    And ok, one words are out, two words are in, the more specific you get, the easier it is to work around a filter.
    How long until they take that workaround data, and use it to step up the filter, hmm?
    And there will be workarounds for the workarounds. You don't keep the internet away from dirty pics.

    I'm not sure if you're arguing that it's not censorship because it only counts for one word searches

    The point is, you should not be having to use any workarounds.

    No, im arguing that its not that big a fucking deal.

    Edit: To clarify, I don't think its a big deal because google is not the open internet. They are a company and are free to place whatever regulation they want on their product. If it's bad enough, people will stop using it. I would care if they made it so you can't find any pornographic results whatsoever. But in the meantime, not being able to find explicit pics from 1 word results doesn't bother me at all.

    It sets a very worrying precedent.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    This so much, idk who types in "boobs" only. If you avidly browse the internet for porn, chances are good that you have a list of sites you go to anyway, with an image section that's hardly touched because they have videos also.
