More signs of the evil that is our Google overlord

Google spent a lot of time convincing us that their motto of “Do no Evil” was real. now our overlords continue to defy the common myth of that motto with their actions.

Now Google is blocking torrent searches from instant results, because you know that is like the worst thing on the internet.

how to kidn returns how to kidnap someone or how to kidnap the presidents daughter
