Safe search was off.
The search result was only filtered (in the sense of yielding a
Chilling Effects notice) for a a few days between October 19 2008 and
October 21 2008. As discussed in the original article, I narrowed the
filtered search result down to a page containing a very specific joke
about Kevin Rudd using various phrases from a joke. Of course, I don't
think the joke was what caused the filter to be invoked - I suspect
Google was filtering a broader range of material or a page that
happened to contain the joke.

> Jon, these examples... Were they done with Google's Safe Search on or off? Maybe it's just that Safe Search started not listing search results containing a joke about lesbians?
