Google Yiddish/Zyklon-B Link Removed

Last Tuesday, I and many others, pointed out a glaring obscenity on Google Image search. When searching images with the word "yiddish" the search page would suggest also trying "zyklon-B", a solid pelletized form of a cyanide insecticide used by the NAZIs to kill millions of Jews and other groups the German Third Reich declared undesirable.

As far as I can discern, neither Google nor a representative has explained or apologized for the incident. A few commenters around the web have said that the incident was not the doing of Google. Rather, they claim, it was placed on the page by an outside web page. Without more information, determining who is at fault cannot be known. In any case, upon being informed of the offense, Google did rectify the situation and the suggestion has been removed from the search page.

If Google was not responsible - thank you for acting quickly. If the contrary - stop doing stupid stuff.

Many don't know that "Liberal Ass" is actually printed on the city limits signs.
