Have I been penalized by Google? I used to be #2 for my main keyword in google. However, since mid Jan my site has dropped off of the face of google for all my keywords. I initially thought they dropped me from their index. Looking at google webmaster tools I get crawled almost every day, I have a PR of 5, over 800 backlinks pointing in, and google has over 47,000 pages of my site indexed. I have been given no notice of any penalty. There are a lot of sites reporting the same results in google’s webmaster forum. [more inside]
Did Google Maps yank their "leave a review" feature for businesses? All I see for my area are prepackaged reviews from Citysearch which aren't even specific to my city and aren't very useful. I see no user input links except for "Business Owners: Add/Edit Your Business". I distinctly remember leaving reviews there a couple of years ago.

Does trademark law really offer any basis for the practice of using legal threats to prevent a trademark from becoming common usage?
