Exclusive: Google Blog Search Bans Searches on "Musharraf"

Apparently, Google's Blog Search tool does not like when I search for "musharraf". I thought it was a silly server side error and tried it again but I got the same result.
The URL that google generates when you search for "musharraf" on the Blog Search tool is "".

Here is what the Google error page says:

We're sorry...
... but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.
We'll restore your access as quickly as possible, so try again soon. In the meantime, if you suspect that your computer or network has been infected, you might want to run a virus checker or spyware remover to make sure that your systems are free of viruses and other spurious software.
We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope we'll see you again on Google.
Seems to me the Google servers have mixed up Musharraf with some kinda spyware or virus, which is not fair even if the Google folks have political thoughts about Musharraf's role in the war against terror.
Do not agree with my opinions? Let me know. Leave a comment and I will reply right back.
