  1. As for hate sites, I think it would be worth for Google to have a little X mark by each domain name, which would mean “Don’t show me this site anymore”. Those preferring to filter out messages about hate and whatever can always use that to create their own list of “banned” sites, those valuing free speech can just ignore it.
