One Bloggers @ virushuo , published an article 3/26/2011 criticizing Baidu on it's piracy and the differences of Baidu and Google
Baidu, the "best Chinese search engine" then played a tricky game the following 24 hours with @virushuo's article and its spreading...
Then I started recording the further changes to see if there were real human intervention with it's indexing...
