At first, people thought that Google may have banned them. But that was not the case, someone actually used the Google Webmaster Tools feature to remove the site from Google.

Ripoff Report told Search Engine Land, "Ripoff Report did not intentionally request Google to delist the website, and we are still investigating what occured."

In any event, the site is now fully back in the Google results. But here is a picture of ripoff report gone missing.
