    Well, you could argue that those searching for “ways to commit suicide” are in fact looking for exactly what Google would be providing: a sign that someone (even a computer-generated response) wants to help them. It’s a smart response to a complicated question.

    On google.com.au it also provides an Australian relevant result, and it comes up even for “should I commit suicide”

    The other thing I noticed here is that Google refuses to “guess” what you are typing – I tried (as a test) “should I commit suicide” and once you get to the “s” it stops guessing and makes you type in the full bit and hit enter before getting results – another good little 1% thing. Before the “s” it makes guesses like “myself”, but not suicide. Clearly this is a manual override, but a good one I think.
