No, I'm arguing that relying on a chain of intermediaries doesn't  
mitigate the intention. Google's intention is to serve up search  
results regardless of context or content. Gipirate's intention is to  
connect you to illegal material, presuming you allow my assertion  
about their name showing their intention.

Let's say that Giporn linked you to pages that linked you to pages  
that linked you to porn. Does the fact that they distance themselves  
in a strictly mechanistic manner alter the fact that their intention  
is to link you to porn?

gipirate must be making *some* decision about where to send you based  
on you eventually getting to pirated material.

gipirate = function (string) -> ... -> pirated material
google   = function (string) -> ... -> anything
