GoogleGuy, i sent in a report about a nestwork of interlinked sites. The problem is I'm not sure if it is against the guidelines anymore. It seems as though they have been chosen as the authority for everything in our region precisely because of this link network. They are netting thousands of links from this wholly owned network and each page sends them a different set of anchor. Is this the way to go? Granted these sites DO have a lot of content and should be returned somewhere for all these searches, but not to the exclusion of all the other local sites for all area related searches. It certainly seems to the owners of the many many sites these two have replaced that this cross linking of your own sites is the way to go.
