Yahoo censors search listings for HousingPanic

Due to pressure from big advertiser Countrywide? You can bet on it.

I always thought Google was evil and Yahoo was just stupid. Now it looks like Yahoo is evil too.

Here's the story.

UPDATE: There may be a less sinister explanation, such as a search engine optimization (SEO) attack by someone who may or may not be affiliated with Countrywide (thanks Twist for the info). Or this may be a pure technical bug and a sign of complete incompetence in Yahoo's new "Panama" technology. Nevertheless, Yahoo has been notified and hasn't fixed it.
