I found exactly the opposite, but I believe this is what he was talking
about:

Ironically, I googled it.

Thank you very much for that.
I tried googling for it, but wasn't too patient :) 
Doesn't it feel a bit like McCarthy-ism time again tho?
We are all just shades of tan after all :)

He never said so. The exact quote is:

>> Some people also happen to be boycotting Google, since they consider
>> Nazis to be valid sources of "news"."

Translate as "Some people do not use Google because Google filters Nazi
and other sites."

Come to think of, maybe I'm wrong.

I assumed "they" to stand for "Some people", but it may indeed refer to
Google.

That is what I assumed. When he said my reply was offensive, that clued me
in that the 'they' was google.

Just for the record, my original reply may have seemed unuseful but the
person had already asked once for gothic and gotten no reply, so at least I
replied to this one. And look what happened, lol.

Absolutely right.
A second group was imposing its views or beliefs on a wider mass of people
through censorship.

The next step is what is the first group going to do now?

It is a matter of informed consent. 8((((
The laughable argument that if a person is over the age of (say) sixteen,
then they know what they are doing.

Just so.
I will stick my neck out and say i would rather live in a world with no
censorship, than a world where anyone with a complaint can draw a new line.

This for adults, naturally.

Just the erosion of the Roman empire... And then of course their
descendants/relatives started the Holy Roman Empire, and ...

Oh, you didn't want a real answer.

Never mind.

I think it's very interesting to see that people are basing their
opinions on the idea that google is either "right" or "wrong" to do
this. I have never seen a law stating that a search engine has to search
"every" page or use "every" possible news source. While it may often be
in their best interest to do so, it won't ALWAYS be the case. Many
private companies, most notably eBay, censor their own sales,
disallowing sales of Nazi-related ephemera and items that are blatantly
race and racist, with listings automatically deleted for using what they
consider to be derogatory racial terms. google is NOT owned by the
government, and so they can essentially refuse to "serve" these sites.


Google is NOT prohibiting the National Socialists (NAZI) from expressing
their point of view, and people are free to use another search engine in
order to find them, should they desire to do so.

Simply having one's site listed on the popular search engine du jour is
NOT an inalieable human right.
