Has Carter Ruck silenced Sidewiki?

I pointed out that the Mail has failed to shake off its Jan Moir sidewikis by moving URL. But it seems that the power of Carter Ruck may prevail where the Mail cannot.

Google Sidewiki: the abuse of UK newspapers begins

I just tweeted that I was finding it hard to resist the temptation to be the first to sidewiki the home page of UK newspapers. (Sidewiki is Google's new way to let you see what other users have said about a page while you look at it).

It looks like I'm too late as the Mail already has been sidewikied as this picture shows.
