Those reports, demonstrating how badly working algos filtered out tons of legitimate sites, among them the site of the Israelian Primeminister, have produced some negative comments in the german press.
True, Damian. The funny thing is I can set the filters when accessing the english language preferences page, and they carry through when I change back the interface language to german. But when I try to change back the settings I can't do that with a german interface. So effectively 99% of all german Google users can not use a SafeSearch. Kids, families etc: no flter available.
