This is a quick diary, just to bring this to your attention.  I have not had time to think it through.

I will update as I figure it out.

Update 1, now I get the same result with ForcefortheFuture.org, a site similar to AmericanCensorship, i.e. I can google ForcefortheFuture.org, google finds the site, with Comcast I cannot get access to the site, where with AT&T I CAN get to the site. I am tending to go with George Hier below: this is site hijacking by Comcast, not censorship.

I tried to google AmericanCensorship.org regarding internet censorship.

Below is a pageshot - a crude shot from my Mac to Inkspot.

Sorry, we can't find "americancensorship.org". We suggest that you check the spelling of the web address or search above.

Via my At&T cell phone, disconnected from my Comcast local (internal to my house) wifi, I can get to Americancensorship.org.

Censorship?  You decide, and please let me know what you think. Personally, I think this is what a closed pipeline looks like - one can find whatever one likes on google, but if one's provider doesn't like the site - buffcakes.

1:40 AM PT: Pisses me off to know that Comcast and maybe any other service provider could do this sort of underhanded hijacking/censorship deliberately.  I know people who have worked for years for Oracle, Yahoo, and Google, and they have worked very very hard to make searches good, replicatable, and timely.  What a major disappointment that their work can be made moot by self seeking sh*theads.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
