If you went forward in the search results a couple pages, it no longer said that all sites were potential threats. It was only for the first page or two.

yea, but how often is the page you are looking for not on the first page.

Actually, I believe it really was for every result for a ~40 minute window. If you didn't see it on the second page results, there's a chance that maybe it was fulfilled by a different server, which already passed the window. Still, it was a far-reaching glitch. Fortunately for me, I was still in bed when it happened. [Razz]

I kind of wonder what's going to happen to the poor soul who did that. They're either going to be terminated with extreme prejudice, or given a second chance, and will be company-wide as The-Person-Who-Took-Down-Google. Frankly, that's one hell of a rep. [Wink]

With the correct spin, it could be good for job-seeking:

Hmm, I googled for info on Jedi Mind Tricks the other day and it said "This is not the page you are looking for"
