The depiction of sexual acts is as old as civilization (and can be
found painted on various ancient buildings), but the concept of
pornography as understood today did not exist until the Victorian era.
Previous to that time, though some sex acts were regulated or
stipulated in laws, looking at objects or images depicting them was
not. In some cases, specific books, engravings or image collections
were censored or outlawed, but the trend to compose laws that
restricted viewing of sexually explicit things in general was a
Victorian construct. When large scale excavations of Pompeii were undertaken in the 1860s, much of the erotic art of the Romans came to light, shocking the Victorians who saw themselves as the intellectual heirs of the Roman Empire. They did not know what to do with the frank depictions of sexuality, and endeavored to hide them away from everyone but upper class scholars. The moveable objects were locked away in the Secret Museum in Naples, Italy
and what could not be removed was covered and cordoned off as to not
corrupt the sensibilities of women, children and the working class.
Soon after, the world's first law criminalizing pornography was enacted
by the Parliament of the United Kingdom in 1857 in the Obscene Publications Act. The Victorian attitude that pornography was for a select few can be seen in the wording of the Hicklin test
stemming from a court case in 1868 where it asks, "whether the tendency
of the matter charged as obscenity is to deprave and corrupt those
whose minds are open to such immoral influences." Despite the fact of
their suppression, depictions of erotic imagery were common throughout
history.

Pornography or porn is the depiction of explicit sexual subject matter for the purposes of sexual excitement.

"Google is on the list as it hasn’t placed any filters to prevent
pornographic content from appearing on its image search website."

I'm confused here. Isn't that what safesearch does?

May be China google didn't have the safesearch option?

lulz...For some odd reason, if you change Googles language to Chinese(simplified), there appears to be no safesearch options. However, if you change the language to Chines(traditional), there are safesearch options.

ok if that's the case then google China doesn't have the safesearch option.

The Chinese government says that it wants a cleaner internet that can facilitate the proper development of minors.

We want a control internet with only our approved content avaiable.

This would be phase 1 then. Can't wait to see what they bitch about in phase 2.Heh

And what the hell are the search providers appoligizing for? They're friggin' search engines. If I search for something porn related, I better get some porn! There's plenty of parental control software out there. The search engine should NOT be responsible for filtering anything.

And I'd love to see how Google accurately filters porn images with obscure titles like 'img_1.gif'. I'm sure there's software to analyze images for this, but how do they detect between porn and a work of art? Or even softcore porn, which most lingerie stores would qualify as but are legit businesses.
