SmackdownCorps received a message from a close CJ source on Friday, with reference to Google's progress on taking down terrorist videos. It seems there are no such plans - without you and me. "My understanding is that most of the delays in taking down flagged videos now has to do with their automated process. They're having a hard time programming it for Arabic. So flags on videos that have certain keywords in English should be coming down quickly, while in foreign languages not so much. They still are relying on us, though, to flag videos. That is, they won't be proactively searching for terror videos, but responding to our flags."
- A program capable of removing terrorist videos identified by Arabic keywords is in the works, but still buggy.
- You now have a search program using English keywords capable of finding terrorist videos.
- You will NOT be searching for them yourselves.
- You will respond if we bring them to your attention.
