    It is odd. Anti Defamation League perhaps.

    Notifying people that they don't support disgusting anti-semitism is "PC gone too far"? Then what is PC not gone too far? Accepting people shouting racist epithets on the streets? I agree that sometimes there is overcensorship based on political correctness but notifying people that you don't support a horrible anti-semitic site called "Jew Watch" is okay in my books.

    It would be tantamount to a public declaration that our oppressors had so far succeeded in inoculating us with their perverted conceptions of justice and morality that we had finally decided to accept those conceptions as our own, and no longer needed an alien army to force them upon us.

    It only looks like a way of warning people about the content they might find under that search. If someone enters a deliberate term of abuse, they know what to expect.
    I wasn't aware that 'Jew', as opposed to 'Jewish' was more likely to be used derogatorily.

    I think it's fine, so what? They are disassociating themselves from any offence caused to Jews by what comes up in the list. The problem is that they should feel compelled to do so by the stuff produced by the crazies and the racists, not the disclaimer itself.
