Why?

Writing about web page http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=30110

According to the inquirer if you search for Ashley Cole on Google it comes up with 'Ashley Cole Gay'as a suggestion, but I just tried it and it doesn't .

Interesting situation. As far as I was aware the algorithm google uses to suggest other searches simply has some popularity heuristic based upon past searched with related key words. Why choose to remove this in this instance? You aren't implying that Ashley Cole is Gay with the search, simply suggesting that that may be a more relevant search based on other people's recent activities. Whilst this is clearly small fry compared with the China issue google is becoming a bit of a disappointment.

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. – so why do this?

Edit Note: the gay suggestion is still there, but further down the page: the point still remains generally though there will probably be more posts on this subject later.
