Norton Firewall Censors Google Searches
According to the industry newsletter "Search Engine Watch", the
latest version of Norton Personal Firewall now, by default
setting, blocks any paid ads that appear in Google and Overture
search results. Not a bad thing in itself but, in this case, I
find it worrying as it's not the kind of behavior I expect from
a firewall. Makes you wonder what else is being censored from
your view. If you are running Norton Personal Firewall, try
searching Google for "anti-virus software”. Bet you won't see
any ads from Norton's competitors ;>)

Naw. They would not do that. Wink
