    The Gross Searches Leading People To Our Wiki Child Porn Piece

    We published a mini-expose of Wikipedia's child porn problem. What kind of search terms brought people to that piece?

    Like every website, we have analytics which show us where people come from or how they get to a particular page. It's useful for knowing who's picking up our stuff and who all of you lovely people might be.

    But the search terms that are leading people to our expose of Wikipedia's child porn problems? Ugh. There are people are typing "boy penis" into Google. And while it's possible the people who knew enough about search engine operators to put "child pornography" in quotes — and presumably to use incognito mode — had pure intentions, I wonder. Actually, I don't.
