This is the first time they have removed date from all results, even CNN and other big sites don't show a fresh tag any more.

I'm seeing it on 209.85.135.104

3 Results in my blog I posted in the past 8 hours all have fresh tags.

I stopped noticing the fresh date tag months ago. I assumed then that it has been removed permanently. I guess some still see it?

I now often says stuff like - 3 hours ago or - 8 minutes ago instead.

They have been testing things, 'Cached - Similar Pages - Note this' have also been removed, but they are back again.

Rather than "removed and then replaced", it is more likely that certain datacentres have it and others do not.
