    Google for something like 'email webmaster@cprogramming.com' or 'email@cprogramming.com'. You get a nice error message.

    Do you think Google should be disabling functionality to thwart a virus or worm? I'm not sure that is a good idea.

    >> You get a nice error message. <<

    One would think they would state the reason. Can anyone decode the dump?

    Working fine for me, but I did read this earlier, which also seems to implicate a MyDoom virus.

    Seems like those errors aren't happening anymore. My guess is that that kind of blocking was just a quick fix, and they've implemented better filtering to catch searches by the MyDoom virus.
