Google should be neutral. It shouldn't be up to them to hide a site from people. I know that directly targeting TPB has no effect, but this is just wrong.

Also if Google wants to give the most relative results possible, what percentage of people searching for "TPB" want information on ThinkPad Buttons? :P

"The Pirate Bay was down across the U.S. for at least three hours on Friday, an outage that comes as the site's latest bandwidth provider comes under pressure from entertainment companies.

2)
"Earlier on Friday, Google stopped indexing The Pirate Bay but later acknowledged it booted the site from its search results by mistake.
...
Later, Google updated it's statement: "The removal appears to be an internal error and not part of a DMCA request.""

This sucks! It is one thing to remove a copy-right video from Youtube. It is infinitely more serious to f- around with search results... even by mistake.

technical issue: Google does not want to get its ass sued.

Do you think you can sue Google if your site is removed from the search results?
