They are not being dropped. The "site:" operator is broken. See the latest
parent thread/post from 1-script.

Dmitri said something about that. According to WMW, it is important that the
two URL's are 'merged', using PHP or whatever....

That sounds like an intersting possibility, but somehow I doubt it. One needs
to know how they build their data in order to understand what broke, how
serious the consequence is, and /what/ the consequences actually are. I am
clueless, but we are all just making observations and share some
speculations. I think it helps...

I am not growing impatient, but I am filled with anticipating, still waiting
for that day when things return to 'normality'. It is not a new status-quo,
that's for sure. After all, a few Google engineers have already confirmed
that there were unexpected, unintentional errors. If these cannot be fixed,
however, this may lead to a new status-quo indeed.
