It's far from clear what's causing this; the site's PageRank is apparently fine. Attempts to contact Google have fallen on deaf ears and dumb autoresponders. The site was even recently redesigned in the hope of fixing the problem, with no luck so far. Is the world's most popular search engine really this broken, and how much money are people bringing in from knowing the black magic to work around it?"
Here's an extreme example:
You are a member of an oppressed minority.
One day, the government sends troops into your city and 50,000 other members of your group are killed.
The government says that only 100 were killed, by "vigilantes."
You publicly dispute this.
The government puts you in prison.
