Oh Noes!. Oh. wait. If I search now, the results are fine, so looks like 
even Google could follow Google's instructions OK.

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2339959,00.asp explains it all.

""What happened? Very simply, human error," Mayer wrote. Google works 
with StopBadware.org, compiling a list of sites that could harm a user's 
computer. Unfortunately, a Google employee apparently added a "/" URL, 
which resolved to every URL in Google's database. "

Of, course I'm sure there, would be a much worse, explanation if you 
drilled, deep enough. ,
