What about “Don’t be evil?”

Lilith Saintcrow has a thoughtful post regarding the Google Book Settlement. Somehow the well researched post regarding the Google Book Settlement by Gillian Spraggs has disappeared from google search.  Other posts she’s made are still in exactly the same place in the rankings as before, but that one can’ t be found even with a specific search.  If the issue is something on her end, such as her server, blog, software, etc., wouldn’t more than the one post be lost?

Google, that wouldn’t have anything to do with Ms. Spraggs opinion that the settlement isn’t as good as advertised, would it?

UPDATE: in comments below, Ms. Spraggs informs me that her post has reappeared in the Google rankings.  I consider this very good news.
