    Question Search engine ?

    We know that "Google" is anti-gun.
    Which other search engines do you guys ("Guys", a group of two or more people, originally used to refer to groups of males, now commonly used to refer to any groups) use the most ?

    Is there one pro-SA ?

    How can a search engine be anti gun? I've been using google for years and never really seen anything to attest to that. I'll continue to use google either way...it loads really fast, isn't cluttered with ads and gadgets, and it works well.

    Maybe you should do a search on ... google ... just kidding.
    I have seen that statement quite often, mainly that they refuse any ads related to guns or SD.

    I agree with you, it is a drn good search engine ...

    Google (the search engine) isn't anti-2A. The people who program Google, OTOH, are very anti-2A and anti-conservative. Google has built a reputation (almost bragging) on it's data mining success. Google will turn over data at the drop of a hat. Remember the Chinese people looking at western sites? China demanded Google deny access and within an hour, all access to western sites was denied. Wanna bet they'd do the same thing here? I've heard too many horror stories, real or perceived to get warm & fuzzy feelings about Google. If other people like them, great. I don't use google any more. I'll take my chances with Yahoo or another service.

    While I understand that you don't want to associate with Google for those mentioned reasons, I have discovered that if I were to limit all my dealing with people and businesses that agree with the same ideals and such I do, I will have to gather and hunt. Now, I will not buy Gas from Citgo (Hugo Chavez) so I do understand your position. Just remember that sometimes avoiding those who don't support your ideals can be a difficult task. Me......I can't live without Google (I'm too scared to even try)

    I don't know if they are anti-gun or not but it would be very easy for a search engine to either block sties or dirrect you to sites they approve of. I believe that is how some search engine work in restricted parts of the world.

    I didn't know they were anti-gun. I'm able to find stuff I'm looking for just fine on it. I use Yahoo a lot, too. I usually get the same results. Maybe they're both filtered the same way and I'm not getting the results I should be getting. You've piqued my interest. Time for some research...

    Why would you say they're anti-gun? I think they're just like any other business and try to appeal to as many people as possible by staying neutral.

    Their search results are fine, many gun topics come up with articles based on facts and logic, such as NRA-ILA results, guncite.com results, etc.
