Hi rudy,

I tried your search and a few others (using IE6/Win2K) on Google's .com,
.co.uk and .ca flavours, with and without UA spoofing, but I couldn't see
the enhanced results at all.

I do remember them adding a frame to groups.google.com ages ago, but it had
a link to hide itself at the top - one click on that and I've never seen it
again. You could try browsing to a thread in a newsgroup, clicking "without
frames" and seeing if that removes it from the search results as well.

Out of interest, are the "enhanced" results obviously paid for?

Let them know about it - comments at google dot com - I like to think
they're one of the few companies that might actually take notice of user
feedback :-)
