Google and YouTube Now Regarded
As Porn Sites
Governments around the world are beginning to take action to try to stop the children being subjected to the level of porn available on Google “images” and You Tube.
Many civic councillors and concerned parents want to know why the availability of pornography on Google has not become more generally discussed in the media.
Most children these days have computers in their rooms, to play games and watch videos; however with the ready availability of wireless broadband throughout households these computers can easily access the internet. One Belmont based mother in California was shocked to see the level of pornographic material available on Google. She wanted to know why this company is not commonly understood to be as “sellers of smut”.
“It must be remembered that Google is a top company favoured by institutional investors and banks. Once it becomes generally know what this company is at it will be dropped like a hot potato” said one concerned father in Tampa Bay, Florida.
The situation is similar with You Tube where pornographic videos are available for free.
When this reporter called his local Google office nobody was available to comment.
Concerned citizens should act decisively to protect their families and demand that pornography be banned from these “businesses”.
To the Google Management 28.05.2009
Dear Sir or Madam,
Attached please find a copy of an article, whereby it is claimed that Google and U Tube are to be classified as pornography sites.
If this is true then this is a very disturbing development, as a parent and a community activist,
Only a few weeks ago we witnessed the Google car taking video clips of our homes.
At the time we were a bit concerned, but this development brings us into a completely new ball game!
I would find it very disturbing if a known pornography distributor was taking photos of my home or my children!
I use both these medium, to communicate with the local communities and the wider world.
The last thing I need now is to be told I am using designated pornography sites, and allowing my children to do the same.
I would like to draw your attention that under Irish law (The child protection act) I along with many thousands of Parents could be prosecuted and or have to face allegations of corruption of children. if we were to allow our children to use classified pornography web based sites !
The service that Google is providing is exemplary, and until now was a service the whole family used
I call upon you now, as a parent and community activist, to desist allowing pornography access to your services
and to immediately announce that you are doing so
There are enough alternative sites available!
