    For work purposes I would not block any sites, however, on my personal computer ehow is definitely one to be blocked! ;-)

    Google seems to go back and forth on the blocking sites. Once upon a time you had the ability through the tool bar to vote a site up or down. It seems they have integrated a lot of those tool bar functions into other platforms.

    I don’t know the point of a ‘personalized results’ feature that, instead of reducing spammy search results, ACTUALLY INCREASES them! I had blocked a couple hundred sites, mostly reverse phone number sites, because they offer ZERO information, but only the ‘promise’ of information for a fee ranging from $1.99 to $39.99. The sites that offer access to the real information with out charging a fee get lost back on page 20 or after on the Google Search Results.

    Though Matt Cutts of Google assured that Site Blocking would be reenabled, he said on 1/12/12 that it “would take some time.” It is now 1/29/12 and Google still hasn’t fixed the bug. I would say that since over 6 MILLION Google manhours have passed, it’s taking much more than some time!

    Frankly, unless their intent was to DE-PERSONALIZE results, they should take down SEARCH PLUS until they debug it. Clearly it is NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME!!!!

    This is correct, site blocking is still available, just not as easily.  You have to click 4 times instead of twice!
