Google said, via SearchEngineLand, about possible censorship: “Not so, Google says. A spokesperson tells us: “This is a bug and we’re working to fix it as quickly as we can.”

I guess so. I refuse to accuse Google of anything. They say it is a bug, and we get to accept that as all the more information we are going to get.

Soon, the results should be back in order, and that means we can all scuttle along. Thanks for setting it right, Google.
