I also noticed this was no longer working today when I tried it. I am in the US, but didn't check other datacenters.

seeing the same for 5 DCs I checked ... It's like the 1x -dfad after Florida, once it's too well known it stops working.

Ouch, it doesn't work in Canada.
I guess Google doesn't want people to see the truth.

It's probably a waste of resources in regular search, since their users wouldn't make any use of it - just webmasters & SEOs, who most likely are not exactly their favorite people on the planet.

It is still working at one data center I tried it at; not for a difference between 6 and 10 total "words" like it was, they're the same now - but still useful.

To be honest, I don't think it's got anything to do with not wanting people to see it. It's come up at 2 specific times temporarily, and I've got a notion it's for testing purposes. I will, however, keep my mouth shut from this point on, just in case. ;)
