Google Webmaster Tools Delists All Verified Sites?

There seems to be a major bug in Google Webmaster Tools where Google is telling virtually all webmasters that their sites are not indexed in Google. For example, I am personally getting the following message for all my sites:

Google Webmaster Tools Error

Yes, that reads:

No pages from your site are currently included in Google's index. Indexing can take time. You may find it helpful to review our information for webmasters and webmaster guidelines.

Hmm, but this site is indexed in Google: Google Index Your Site?

So, I would not worry, it just seems to be a display issue in Google Webmaster Tools. As you can imagine, there is a lot of forum noise about the issue.

I think that whole section is messed up. I am getting a message they have not crawled my blog since April 7th, but I clearly see googlebot hitting it 4-5 times today alone.

Certainly very interesting. Search engines have been know to hand filter results, so anything is possible. The best defense is to put out quality websites and not worry about anything coming back to bite you.
