Google has been filtering piracy related sites from its instant and autocomplete search functionality for a couple years, and now the company has added popular music streaming service Grooveshark to the list of sites that will no longer appear automatically...

There are a dozen other sites to look it up, google is not tell all see all for your searches lol. Try startpage...Anonymous and it works.

So if you're a total doofus that can't spell, or you have the worst memory on the planet, then this works. If not, it's useless. At least Google stopped some car thieves, so that kinda makes up for it.

I get Grooveshakers (Band) when I type: Groovesha

Can anyone list off some great search engines that dont filter out stuff that we might actually want or a way to turn off google's piracy filter?

I remember Google being the greatest search engine around.. anymore it seems like they keep on filtering stuff out, and this autocomplete bullshit is starting to get frustrating, it's not really helping me, at least....

Google started becoming ***** proof and it starting tagging the intelligent people as *****s in the process.
Hence why google thinks it knows what im trying to type better than I am. I dont want google to mess with what I type in automatically! its annoying to say the least.

Also, why does techspot tag the word that describes unintelligent people as a cuss word? it makes my post look alot more ignorant than it actually is, haha

Because apparently, when justified, calling people what they are can hurt their "feelings"...

Along with the bubble search filter, this makes google less and less useful for actual search, too much control, too much censoring, zero and I mean ZERO privacy

I moved to DuckDuckGo actually, it sometimes needs you to fine tune your search keywords a bit more but it gets the job done better than google

I'm dreaming of Web 3.0, absolutely decentralized, impossible to censor. At least for some aspects of one's web experience, like p2p communities. I have seen way too many bogus DMCA take down requests, that **** can't continue. A guy made a mod for Doom, and Mediafire was asked to have his stuff removed, probably because the word "doom" was somewhere in the package title. I managed to find the package on a german server, and I can assure you it infringes nothing.
