I noticed something quite strange when I did a Google search for "Climategate" earlier today. The Auto fill search function (see below) does not for some very strange reason include either "Climategate" or "Climate gate". I say this is strange, because surely this must be one of (if not) the most popular search queries over the past week or so.
I'm not the only one to notice some funny going-ons with Google and Climategate searches - The Telegraph's James Delingpole writes: Climategate: Googlegate? What is going on at Google? Richard North over at the EU Referendum blog also has some questions.
This may all be very innocent, and there may be a very simple explanation, but it does seem strange that such a popular word does not appear in Google's auto fill search function.

Update: I've looked further into to this and it seems that others have already noticed this anomaly. What's going on?
