It's ironic that a search company is hiding its most sought after search results.

I don't think you read the story. They unbanned it.

Google tends to actually block results now due to US gov't take down notices... Thats when i switch to yahoo and the same search results are there and the ones that were blocked are now not blocked. Guess Yahoo doesn'y play ball with restricting freedom.

luckily there is a standalone torrent search engine on the web. so if its blocked or unblocked doesn't really make a difference.
