The blame game
From microsoft.public.windowsxp.messenger today…
I have a blog on the Live Spaces. Sometimes I make jokes on the Chinese
I used google to search and I can’t find blog, so I am happy with this
I am angry. Microsoft did not do enough to protect users privacy. I hope the
I will try to get to Live later.
Here is my reply for fun

I’ll have Microsoft send in our elite MVP squadron to infiltrate the Baidu network operations center and have your pages removed immediately.
Seriously though, I’m curious what you expect them to do to "protect your privacy"? If you write something online without explicitly protecting it, a search engine will find it — especially on a major blog site like Spaces. It is then up to that search engine to come back again and discover it’s gone, not to mention updating its index removing your content (and their cache thereof).
Google obviously updates its index more often than Baidu does. I’m afraid in this case, the only person you can be angry with is yourself. There is no bug here.
Unfortunately, I forgot to specifically state that Baidu must have indexed it before he restricted it, since that may not be obvious. Here’s the thread in question. I doubt there will be any follow-ups.
