I've always thought it would make for a fun party game to start out with a random page from Wikipedia, name how many clicks it would take to get porn, and then see if it's possible. But then my adult son is a game designer, so I guess it's how we think.

Sent from my iPhone - typos & odd punctuation almost certain :(

In the early days of search engines, they weren't very smart. They relied on keywords and the porn sites took advantage of it. You could search for something innocent and a link would pop up that looked innocent and all of a sudden there's loud moaning and groaning coming out of your speakers and lots of flesh and body parts on your screen. These days the search engines are much smarter and that sort of thing hasn't happened in years. But at one time it happened with embarrassing frequency.

Best Regards,

Mike

That's one of the downsides of working on-site... one has to worry about being branded a porn surfer just by landing inadvertently on a porn site. Working at home,
What could you possibly search for that might reveal porn sites, at work? :)

In the 100+ work-related searches I initiate each day, I haven't once accidentally stumbled upon such a site... and I only have "safe search" turned on for images (because it is easy to accidentally stumble upon NSFW images - but image searches are not the same).
