thetegister.co.uk: Microsoft bans Scroogle

Microsoft's MSN Messenger service doesn't want you talking dirty - and its definition of dirty talk is quite peculiar. If you send an instant message containing the word "scroogle.org" via the Microsoft service, the message never arrives. The sender doesn't know it was discarded, and the recipient has no indication that it was ever sent, as the original message remains in the chat window and history.
Scroogle.org is Daniel Brandt's Google scraping proxy. Scroogle scrapes Google's website to return its search results without ads - bypassing the Google cookie, and protecting the user's privacy.
