Ask Stops Blocking Search for "Pedophilia"

This was last week...

The recent news coverage about Ask censoring certain search terms in rather silly ways had effect; Ask is now not blocking searches for e.g. “pedophilia”, “fighting pedophile abuse”, or “laws on child sex abuse” anymore. Apparently, there were some legacy filters around... let’s say it was a bug, not a policy. It’s good to find Ask reacting quickly to blog criticism. (Disclosure: Ask advertises here.)
