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, "" makes me think that this is the only "explanation" for offensive searches that they have made available (although possibly not).
