Rather amusing that this has happened. Sadly it informs us that it is within the power of Google to eliminate real data that is suddenly inconvenient.
Essentially a cadre of stupid people have taken it upon themselves to eliminate data. The data is absolutely true but also inconvenient. This alone informs us that GOOGLE will soon need to be broken up.
Humanity cannot allow its archiving ability to be preempted by stupid people.
