Perhaps I am overreacting to this, but I have been concerned for some time, as a big Google paying customer, that they are letting some agenda other than business affect what they are doing. I have wondered about Blogger, where this blog and most of my others are hosted. Starting in July 2007, they started interfering with the ability of Google to index many blogs, including the NSFW Former Naval Person blog.
Now, we read that Obama partisans might be interfering with Hillary Clinton supporting bloggers. Bloggasm has the story. They are said to have persuaded Google to act against some blogs.
