Google apology ad

Apparently Google bought the ad space for the search term "Jew" -- and used it to post an apology for the (potentially) offensive material the search raises.

Interesting response... This seems to me to be a reasonable solution to the "problem" (if it really was a problem), as compared against re-ranking search results to satisfy angry (even rightfully angry) groups.

Incidentally, the URL, "http://www.google.com/explanation.html" makes me think that this is the only "explanation" for offensive searches that they have made available (although possibly not).
