Missing Results on

Search for the word “bullshit” on and you get over 12 million results... but search for it on Yahoo Italy and you’ll get no results at all (safe-search or not). also doesn’t have a single result – except maybe directory results – for words like “shit”, “fuck”, or “preteen”. Do we see an Italian censorship law in action here shielding surfers from terms that may hit on pornography, illegal stuff, or general rudeness? There is no trace of Yahoo telling what happens on their results page.
