AltaVista in “Bible club” web search porn outrage
Query returns burning bush and second coming
Let's face it, it's difficult enough to protect web-surfing kids from a barrage of filth and pornography without apparently innocent search engine queries pointing your impressionable offspring to the hardest XXXX sites on the web.
Beware, then, of AltaVista and its propensity for displaying porn banners in response to any query containing the word "club" in quotes. Type in "bible club" and verily, those who are seeking out the word of God shall be rewarded with a link to Baroda Bible Club which Brings You The Word Of God. Grace be with you and peace from God our Father and from our Lord Jesus. Amen.
Unfortunately, they are also rewarded with a raunchy banner showing a young lady whose cup clearly runneth over.
In fact, any query in quotes and containing the word "club" returns some sort of banner promising immediate sexual release, including "small furry animals club", "children's club", and indeed "celibates club".
Naturally, we fully expect that AltaVista will deal with this glitch pronto, so we've thoughtfully provided this screen grab demonstrating the full extent of the outrage. Enjoy it while you can.
