Strange issue with my purchased apps List

Hi all,

I've been noticing that apps apparently removed from the App Store still show up on my purchased list. If I double tap on the app name, I get a blank screen with a thing that says loading. However, I am still able to download the app. This happens with things like SmackMe, SayPlay, and some other apps. What's going on here? Are the apps actually removed from the Store or just in a different country store?

#1 Also noticed this

I have also noticed this. I noticed it with paid apps. The apps have been removed from the App Store entirely, but I think Apple still wants you to be able to download apps that you might want. The only apps for which this is not available are apps that exhibit large bugs, meaning that they are not useful to anyone, or apps that seriously violate the App Store Submission Guidelines.
