Yahoo Italy Blocking Certain Queries?

Nathan Weinberg reported and so did I that Yahoo Italy appears to be blocking results for certain queries. If you conduct a search on preteen at Yahoo Italy, you should notice that no results are returned. Nathan also says if you search for the capitalized version no results are returned as well. So is this some sort of censorship by Yahoo Italy? If so why?
