Looting, cronyism, shock therapy, and the oligarchs (Russia) post fall-of-the-wall[edit]

1st edit: I'll keep the first version of this below. At the time I thought the name "Napoleoni" in the Advanced Search phrase box should have led into more, but perhaps I had been away from the issue too long and was forgetting too many key words. This search I did last night seems to open up to the saga quite a bit. But I haven't been through many pages of the search, or many of the url/sites. https://www.google.com/search?as_q=oligarchs+traffiking&as_epq=shadow+economy&as_oq=Jeffrey+Sachs+shock+therapy+neoliberal+&as_eq=winters&as_nlo=&as_nhi=&lr=&cr=&as_qdr=all&as_sitesearch=&as_occt=any&safe=images&tbs=&as_filetype=&as_rights=

Original draft: Might be me, but there seems to be a bit of a black out. Even when putting "Claire Sterling" in the Advanced Search phrase box, hardly anything turns up (discovered by watching her single Youtube [80s] she wasn't as un- [politically] biased as I had hoped). Putting "Loretta Napoleoni" in the phrase box doesn't do anything eitherApuleius3 (talk) 15:46, 27 March 2014 (UTC) Apuleius3 (talk) 14:57, 27 March 2014 (UT

1st edit: Today (the day of the edited-opening para up there at the top) is Thur April 3 and it's 5:30 PM EST in the US. 70.160.46.113 (talk) 21:52, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

@Apuleius3: Searches work better if you spell the search terms right. You left out the "c" in "trafficking". --Thnidu (talk) 20:08, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

BBC censored by Google[edit]

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-28851366 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.86.117.208 (talk) 13:18, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

This is already mentioned as part of a long list about pages removed by Google due to the 'right to be forgotten' at the end of the sub-section on the European Union. -Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 13:53, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Confederate Flag[edit]

Googling "confederate flag" under Google Shopping shows absolutely zero results, while googling "flag confederate" or other synonymous terms does. This appears to be worldwide. I'm not familiar with Wikipedia etiquette, so someone else should add this info to the article.2.86.19.19 (talk) 18:17, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Just adding it like that would be original research, we can add it if we have reliable sources to back up the claim of censorship. — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 19:10, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on Censorship by Google[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected links on Censorship by Google which have been added to the blacklist, either globally or locally. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed or are highly inappropriate for Wikipedia. The addition will be logged at one of these locations: local or global If you believe the specific link should be exempt from the blacklist, you may request that it is white-listed. Alternatively, you may request that the link is removed from or altered on the blacklist locally or globally. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. Please do not remove the tag until the issue is resolved. You may set the invisible parameter to "true" whilst requests to white-list are being processed. Should you require any help with this process, please ask at the help desk.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://www.change.org/petitions/larry-page-unblock-the-word-bisexual
    Triggered by \bchange\.org\b on the local blacklist

If you would like me to provide more information on the talk page, contact User:Cyberpower678 and ask him to program me with more info.

@Cyberpower678: Change.org is referenced in a paragraph that describes a petition to remove Google's blacklisting of keywords. The link seems appropriate in this context, so I think it should whitelisted here. Jarble (talk) 04:32, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 2 external links on Censorship by Google. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Montenegro[edit]

The autocompletion of "Montenegro" on searches works now (20:03, 20 January 2016 (UTC)), and probably has for years; I've added that update. Mistaken autocompletion/ autocorrection is common on many terms, apparently depending on what has been searched for in the past, and is not particular to "Montenegro"; I've removed that sentence.

Montenegro seems to be censored again[edit]

"Search suggestions" says Montenegro has been unbanned, but I can't search the term on Google anymore. Can anyone else confirm this?--Eurotool (talk) 01:40, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

    • I agree, Montenegro it is still banned word. Shame on Google. (Ironically, words Niger and Nigeria work fine) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.94.125.229 (talk) 18:27, 16 November 2016 (UTC)
