Disturbing search engine hits

One of the bits of information I get about the people reading my blog is the search engine referrals. The most popular search term is still "Nate Corddry," which is a little surprising but not at all troubling.

What I find bothersome is that a number of people appear to have found my blog while searching for pornographic images of people well below the age of consent even in the most libertine jurisdictions. (For obvious reasons, I don't want to use the common phrase for such images, but suffice it to say that it rhymes with "Pity Corn.")

It's bad enough that people are looking for explicit images of fourth graders, but what confounds me is that someone looking for such things would bother to click on a link to an article here about Supreme Court jurisprudence. Yes, this blog occasionally uses terms like l0yo [oops — did I misspell that??], but I hope it's clear that you're not going to find any photos of Asian schoolchildren getting unnaturally friendly with farm animals.
