In fact, any combination of the "link" plus "com" will make MSN/Live produce a blank page, as long as the "link" part comes before the "com" part, for example:
1) link hello com
2) 122link234 heycom
3) linkage fast commets
4) linkstore commercial
Live is losing millions of $$ is keywords that follow this pattern. Looks like a programmer messed up a regular expression!
link commercial storealso leads to a blank page, whereas
Johann Heinrich Friedrich Link German botanistdoes give relevant results. It looks like some kind of bug that may be the prelude of some changes, possibly the removal of the link: operator.

I don't agree that the blank page is a forbidden search. How can you say that searching for "link commercial store" is a forbidden search?
Yeah, I don't think it is a forbidden search either. A "forbidden page" would serve a 403 error code. This isn't happening. It is simply a blank page so something is just not working. I think.
I just wish that MSN would make some kind of indication to the community so we can know for sure what the story is.
