What does being a judge have to do with determining whether or not I
copied data?  In many jurisdictions, a judge wouldn't even be involved
in such a determination of fact, a jury would.

Everything was fine just a few days ago, before the LWG started deleting stuff.

I note that the only evidence whatsoever that I ever traced anything
from Google, is the fact that I said I had.  And you don't trust me.
So this deletion spree is based on absolutely nothing.

I thought I understood the policy.  To cover your ass so Google can't
say you're encouraging people to break the TOS.  But I've been told
that isn't it at all, and that you actually don't want people to trace
from Google.
