Yes.  It wasn't so much of a breach as it was a bug that didn't get much use... maybe because they only had 500,000 users.  It'll suck for SEO, since the goog gave that a lot of authority (gee, I wonder why), but I won't miss it at all.

I saw that, Dario! So, because they made a mistake, got hacked and didn't tell anyone, they are taking it away. I suppose it makes sense to them!
