Google Maps was already under fire from Sunrise, Florida business owners after misplacing the city last week (for the THIRD time). And, since last Monday, Google Help forum began filling up with reports of various types of errors, including duplicates, merge problems, lost reviews, lost stats, lost categories, lost changes, lost rankings, and numerous reports of "We do not currently support this location."
