A search engine where you can't search for anything doesn't sound very useful. Looks like pets.com and Friendster will have to clear some space for google at the loser booth.

It's not only social "justice" and Progressivism. They are using human workers to rate search results for appropriateness. Machine learning techniques are then used to delete search results and search terms, and edit search terms, that don't appeal to the average person. This feeds a steady stream of clickbait to the average user, but destroys the great strength of machine searches, finding useful things that would take days of library research to find on your own.

For example, "missing mass" used to return many results for astronomy's dark matter problem, then switched to missing children in Massachusetts, and is now dominated by the burning question of whether it is OK for Catholics to miss mass.

If they keep this up, in a few years they will be a pop culture database. To find any useful information you will have to visit a library and dig through paper books.

Google desperately needs to get someone disciplined in charge and go through the company firing the empire builders, petty bureaucrats, and childish cliques.

Well put and exactly correct! Their customer-facing product has already shown great declines over the past few years and projecting out Google will be completely superfluous for non-AOL level users within two years. While dumb users are better customers for advertising there are well-known flaws in the approach of catering to them. Most immediately you will lose customers who aren't stupid and they tend to be from much higher-earning demographics (ie spend more $$). Less obvious is how dispatching those users creates a desirable customer base for your competitors to build from. As competitors mature a tipping point is reached where one of them earns a reputation for being the choice of this higher-end demographic, creating a stampede of Google users to convert less they be associated with the lower-status product. It's the story of the low-end mall getting killed by the shiny new mall and the MBA's at Google are already networking for their next job because the writing is in the wall. Google has failed to create real revenue generation from its non-advertising products so they are particularly vulnerable here.

Maybe its for the better, the digitalistion of books makes it way to easy to censore.

I mean, they've already done it with jihad/sharia results. Literally every link on the first page of search results is either a defense of jihad or sharia law. Google is pozzed beyond repair, and the recent firing of their employee for politely voicing rational concerns about the company culture, along with the banning of Jordan B. Peterson from both his Youtube and Gmail accounts, is just the tip of the iceberg as far as what's coming down the pike.

Beirich says Google’s actions so far are not enough. “Google’s algorithm is seriously flawed and it’s a scary thing, because millions of people around the world are using it,” she said. “It’s a fundamental problem with how search works.” Beirich points to the case of white supremacist Dylann Roof

We know that. There is no lengths fanatics won't go to in order to push their agenda. It makes zero sense for them not to adjust their search. Besides, we can see it in the results.

Read the article. It says they feel bad for 'Rebel Media' (((Ezra Levant))), and Breitbart (((CEO: Larry Solov))). Both of which are run by freakin' Zionists!!!!

What's wrong with Zionists?

Zionists are Jewish Right wing Nationalists. Very reasonable quite often.

The problem are not the Zionists, the problem are Cultural Marxists and Far Left extremists of all kinds, who, themselves being Jews, hate Zionists more than anyone else. Total hellbent psychos.

Yandex is the largest most trustworthy search engine as of this writing.

True, but DDG, actually sources from yandex. It's similar to say ... the old school one called "dogpile" (and apparently dogpile.com is still active) ... it's a meta-search engine.

Just know that Yandex is a Russian multinational technology company, so I'd be suspicious of what kind of influence the Russian government can or does have on them.

Also, duckduckgo pulls from Yandex:

DuckDuckGo emphasizes returning the best results, rather than the most results, and generates those results from over 400 individual sources, including key crowdsourced sites such as Wikipedia, and other search engines like Bing, Yahoo!, Yandex, and Yummly.

Yandex

Oh, really? Nothing coming from Russia is trustworthy these days.

Hadn't Putin killed Russian Democracy 20 years ago, a Classic European Russia would be a perfect alternative to the Degenerate SJW West. Too bad it is not there. And instead of a healthy alternative there is just another kind of disease - a poor caricature of Mussolini's Fascism executed by a bunch of ex-KGB gangster bosses.

Google's search results are absolute fucking garbage.

If there's anything I respect about Microsoft now, it's that they never gave into that SJW horseshit and let it ruin their company.

MS is absolutely shitty but in a pure-capitalist way. These days it's comforting to know you are only being fucked so a company can make money rather than for cultural propaganda reasons.

Fascinating, how MS begins to look cool in comparison to Google. The MS, hated by nearly everyone, is now looking more decent than Google. Who would had thought. Yes, MS are assholes, but at least in a reasonable way, whereas Google is obviously run by a bunch of SJW psychos.

They deserve a lot of hate, to be frank. At least for selling overpriced products that keep getting shittier and shittier by every new release. Aside form many other reasons.

This. MS has done a lot to kill their brand over the last few years. Their office products are inconvenient bloatware, the OS is getting to the point of being unusable. The NOKIA brand they took over - Ms basically killed it. NOKIA is a cheep crap now, not even a shadow of its former self.

I remember reading a slogan on a t-shirt that read "I reject your reality and insert my own". We may experience different things and look at the same facts from a different perspective, but, reality is still objective.
