Well, I don't see that any "ruling" is necessary, but if you are relying on the accuracy of the technical director from lds.org's statements for your understanding of the matter, you might want to rethink that based on your report of his response. If he did state that no changes to the site have been made that could affect the stability of a URL which links to search results, I believe he's mistaken.
Here is the URL from the post about which you've inquired. http://scriptures.lds.org/query?words=christ+son+of+god&scripturesearch_button=Search
Below is the URL of the search results I obtained by using the same search terms and the site's scripture search tool. Please note, I inserted a space after "org" in order to avoid posting a link to material that could be considered not civil. The actual URL does not contain that space, and you must remove it in order to access the link.
If you compare the two URL's, it's clear that the site has changed the query language for searches. The URL from the babble post does not match the current query language, and thus the "page not found" message is generated.
Perhaps your contact from lds.org did not understand your question. Or perhaps he was not involved in the web site's programming when a change was made to the search tool. But clearly there has been a change.
Please know that there is no conspiracy, and Dr. Bob is not responsible for anyone getting an error message from clicking on a URL linking to another site.
I trust this will settle the matter. No need to thank me, as I benefitted from checking into this myself.
