4chan Spam Attacks Google Trends (again)

4chan users have demonstrated, yet again, their ability to spam attack Google Trends and get terms to the very top of the trend list (at least temporarily, until Google manually deletes them...).

In 2008, 4chan users managed to get both the swastika to the top of the trends and, shortly afterwards, were able to get the reverse text “ǝlƃooƃ noʎ ʞɔnɟ” to appear (albeit briefly) at the top of Google Trends..

Today, the phrase (which I've taken the decision to censor due to its offensive nature) "☻ lol ☻ n*****s ☻" appeared at the very top of Google Trends. I don't anticipate it will stay there long...
