What's probably more "troubling" is how many take-down requests that google actually capitulated to.

And I would respond to all such requests with the big middle finger.

Kinda like when Google was more than happy to censor the Chinese, until everyone found out!

Right Sergey? Eh, comrade?

Or change their search algorithms to mask and hide certain news websites like the Drudge Report

Now that the word is out, governments around the world will soon discover the "Streisand Effect"

Google and other search providers should fight back by making a portal that highlights exactly what people are trying to get censored.

Put a big, honking "see what people are trying to censor" link on their main page at google.com and youtube.com.
