I don't get the argument. Use the search engine with their terms or don't. It's that simple..
It's not that simple. If John or Jane Doe is searching for a company or a person's name and Google suggests that company or name along with words like paedophile, fraudster or scammer what is the person doing the search supposed to make of that?
I know that when I see suggestions like this I assume that it means that Google knows many people have been searching for it so there is almost certainly some foundation in it. In other words Google has suggested to me that "Acme widgets sucks" or whatever. It's Google that is doing the suggestion so it's Google that has to be accountable.
