I've had some 20 sites -30'ed. The penalty seems to have been replaced by -60. All sites were manually checked by G the previous day. I've also helped others check their logs and G employees were lurking on their sites 1 or 2 days before the drop. I have not seen an automatic -30 since December 06 but it may be still possible.

My sites were mainly thin affiliates so I understand the penalty but in my latest case the site didn't have any affiliate content so the main reason for penalty remains unknown. Looking at the latest -60 penalties it seems you don't have to be a thin affiliate, thin is enough. Mini sites with very little content can be dropped even though the 10 links and some text they have are very useful for visitors.

Which was the cause for your penalty Northweb? I think I might of missed that in your other post?

Thanks

Not sure how a dodgy backlink profile could cause this. Are we saying that competition, via the creation of dodgy backlinks, can cause this penalty. Is Google moving backwards here ?

It takes more than that, although in a few cases such a google-bomb has seemed to work -- but just for a short time. Where there is a healthy backlink profile in addition to dodgy backlinks, that creates trust and google-bombing does not seem effective.
