    Jeez, Barry. You emailed Google about this? Well, I’m sure this is (or was) a pretty neat trick for as long as it lasted. Which shouldn’t be long now… :(

    I just came down here to say the same thing. Now they’re going to get rid of it!

    Why would you email Google for a comment? Basically like telling on someone. Adds no value other at all but rather loses any real value that was available with this hack.

    Well you can imagine every 3rd party seo spy developer would have emailed them eventually as well.

    When discovering an exploit it is traditional in the web security community to notify the targeted company so they can fix the problem, rather than outing them immediately. Dan Petrovic needs to learn to be responsible instead of grandstanding for lots of free publicity. There’s a phrase for such behavior, but it’s not very nice, so I can’t say it.

    (SEL is doing nothing wrong. As a news company it is their duty to report the facts.)

    You are lucky you CAN email Google. I have frequently found bugs in their software (granted not as serious as this), but – unlike any normal company – they don’t provide contact details (have you ever tried calling their switchboard?!). Sure I could post in their public forums, but that isn’t a responsible way to report bugs is it.
