Am I alone in noticing that Google have recently introduced a rating system tag to each search request? The tags are:

http://wg.us.wrproxy.com/wrproxy/files/allowed.gif

and

http://wg.us.wrproxy.com/wrproxy/files/unknown.gif

and

http://wg.us.wrproxy.com/wrproxy/files/blocked.gif

Is this an attempt to help and inform the public about content or is it the first strains in an overture of forthcoming censorship? Or perhaps political correctness gone beserk?

Who decides what is good, bad or ugly? How are the decisions reached.

I, for one, intensely dislike being told what I should and should not read or watch and have today changed my search engine from Google to Dogpile.com
