I'll draw the same conclusion I draw from Yahoo, Excite, Lycos, Alexa and my own site -
I TRACK CLICK THRUS FOR STATS TRACKING USING REDIRECTS, MANY DO IT, NOTHING MALICIOUS INTENDED
If Google has a bug with 302s, then Google needs to fix the bug, simple.
If you want to light a fire under Google, then I suggest the whole 302 Crew take their case to the Google Investor Forums on any stock trading discussion group starting with Yahoo and raise such a holy stink it creates a panic with the investors. Be prepared to write in laymans terms so any 5 year old with 1 share of stock can understand you, and if you make a big enough stink with enough people shouting about and it makes a blip on the stock THEN the media will pick up on it.
Otherwise, you're just wasting time here preaching to the choir.
