Haters gaming the search engines to tell us Jews, women, and Muslims are evil.

Thanx to Metafilter

Yeah, it's alarming but alas it indeed isn't new. A decade ago I did an accidental Google-bomb (fan-fiction item went viral, and because part of the fiction was embedded into meta tags it dominated the search terms for a couple of months) and for a while earlier a fan page I ran outranked the official site. Pity it's still vulnerable... though I gather it takes a lot more effort to spoof/corrupt than in the old days.

-- Steve's seeing the consequences more clearly now, particularly with the funky election results searches and the weekend's PizzaGate detonation.
