Thank you for your cooperation.
And here are some of the "removed" graphics so you can think by yourself and form freely your own opinion about Google and its actions.
Google is not a Nazi company, that's a stupid lie, really!! Or the following was surely "obscenity".
Or, oh well, so you could not just remove that one but you had to camouflage the action by ripping away some other pictures, too. By the way, how your users react to you deleting their content, without prior warning, and without permission?
Google knows better how to save the world, they are almost like, no, they are The God. Was the following graphics perhaps "malicious code"?
Great Google can separate evil from good and knows when mass murdering is justified, like for example in Afghanistan. Oh wait, the next removed graphics must have been "incitement of violence" as only USA know what is true peace and how to achieve it.
And finally the greatest sacrilege of them all. That had to be the "promotions of hate".
"Don't you have any feelings, you monsters. Think all those thousands that have been murdered in Iraq and Afghanistan in the name of democracy. Shame on you!"

Or maybe just spam a la Google. Maybe they should go back to pick their noses and stop patronising Internet users. We are, no matter how hard it is to accept, quite capable for thinking by ourselves, thank you.
