some of the sex blogs that Google plans to wipe from the internet — and all the reasons why they shouldn’t
Google shouldn’t have the right to takeaway precious material from the internet. When this is done alot of personal and valuable material will be lost forever. For this who luckily save the blogs which google is basically illegal removing will be taken down sometime this year. Many bloggers and other viewers are outraged because of the downright disrespect google is showing their customers. The reason they are being taken down is for a reason that is breaking the law so many believe it shouldn’t be removed. The fact is legally google has no right tobremove content a blogger post just because it talks about sex. Sex a natural experience that happens between just about everyone in some point and time in their lives. For that preceded information to be taken away from people is very unfair to citizens.
Freedom of Speech
If the words said aren’t threatening a person directly or group of people the freedom of speech should apply. No matter if the material has curse words or is speaking of something with sexual connotations a blog shouldn’t be deleted because of it. It takes the right away from people to talk about something freely without violence. There is no threat from someone blogging about anything sexual. Everyone has the right to either participate in the blogs details or ignore it. Just like everything else in the public space that can either be participated in or ignored the sexual blogs are the same. No one ever goes back on something they say if they truly mean it. Google has no right to shut down the internet information as it free for the world to explore and enjoy. By google taking away the people of America first amendment is totally preposterous. Not only should it be illegal to do it should put a red flag on Google as a company. Just because something online doesn’t agree with you in a blog it shouldn’t be deleted. Material that demeans people or puts them in real physical or emotions danger should definitely be deleted as soon as possible.
With the deletion of things on a blog about sex a domino affect could occur. Imagine a world where sex talk was completely banned across all points of life. Movies would lose a lot of the classic comedies such as American Pie and other films where sex is fused with comedy to create entertainment. With the entertainment business almost completely merged with sexual connotations it would almost impossible to enjoy any film that wouldn’t be rated r. Even with rated r films sexual connotations being deleted could completely destroy the movie. Films and photographs could eventually be affected by the move google is making by taking down these controversial blogs. Although controversial it is legal so until it becomes illegal it should lent be tampered. If google has the right to take down content because it dislikes blogs talking about sex it may eventually take down every blog it dislikes. This may not seem like a big deal but eventually it will start taking away so much that the truth will be taken away.
Denying Real Life
By deleting a blog because it talks about sex is denying people from discussing issues they experience in real life. This isn’t fair to a person’s life and isn’t beneficial for anyone. With the lack of knowledge being freely dispersed through the internet people will evolve slower. Meaning you won’t know something that someone else found out days, months or even years ago just because a company didn’t want you to know or didn’t like the content. Real life events should never be censored or erased because it is the same as removing truth from the world.
Google May Hurt Themself
If google continues on this path they will most likely lose a lot of the many supporters they have accumulated over the years. Many of the pioneers of google and original users found it to be one of the best search engines ever created. Stilling holding true to this day it is very unwise for google to go against something they have never done. Deleting material based on biased opinions could make users go to yahoo or even bing for their more discreet discussions. No person should ever have fear of putting something informational on a search engines blogging section. If the law abides with it the company should as well. In most cases the two go hand and hand however of google continues to gamble with their success they may lose it.
