    an element of trust that they will do as they say involved
Exactly. I know what they claim to do. I just don't see any reason why I should trust what they say.

Nice argument you have there very well thougth and logical. I also think that whoever doesn't share my ideology and world view is creepy and full of fear and hate.

Is there any food that is not somehow bad for health? I just can't keep count of all the foods that gove you vancer or are somehow bad for your body. I give up, since today I'll just eat whatever I want, fuck health.

Why do people trust in what a corporation running closed source software says? And I'm not talking about google, I'm talking about duckduckgo.

As far as I know ddg might run by NSA personel and in NSAs servers. Just think about it, whats better than having companies give you some data? You being the company harvesting the data.

My point is. Companies should earn our trust showing how and why we should trust them with our data being open about everything they run and do with it.

The saddest thing is that we are completely dependent on many of this corporations and there are no suitable alternatives on sight. The choice is, you are one of their users or you run with a disadvantage in the labour market.

Isn't that the very definition of censorship? You might agree with it but it's still censorship.

I found this definition of censoring in the merrian webseter dictionary. I think it's pretty clear.

    Censoring: to examine in order to suppress or delete anything considered objectionable <censor the news>; also :to suppress or delete as objectionable <censor out indecent passages>

I've been looking for the way to do it and I can't find it... I got to this post searching for the way to do it in google. Can you point me at where are the filter options? Thanks!

Edit: Forget it. I found it. Just click one the domain and then (in the next page) click on the "filter" link.
