Google is/could be banned in the UK

Yep, apparently Google has had a lawsuit filed against them since some information (I don't know what) was linked on Googles search index. BBC don't give much details, but it's f*ckin stupid, really what has this world come to?

From BBC News:

"One of the biggest internet search sites could be banned in the UK after files were indexed on their popular search engine. The files have been kept classified, but are meant to be of some value. Microsoft is looking at a big lawsuit filed against them for the misuse of important and confidential information.

What the do you guys think of this? Stupid idiots man, Google make 1 mistake and they boycott it.

Sorry I fixed it.
