Please hold: Reconnection at POPLINE?

After yesterday's discussion of POPLINE apparently listing 'abortion' as a stopword for their search engine, I have just now rerun a POPLINE basic search on abortion 3 times in the span of several minutes.

14, 48, then 67 records were available via this search. Interesting.

There is still no mention that I can find on POPLINE regarding this alleged action, nor has there been an update at ResourceShelf which was told they would receive an update today.

Now at 11 am Pacific time, the results are up to 105.

The question still remains: What, if any other relevant search terms, may have also been coded as stop words... and why?
