"....and now we have a very weak & penalized site. Glad we could milk all those webmasters for a few months. We still made our money back from all the RX and gambling, and affiliate sites who fell all over themselves to hand us $40 a pop."
You watch, these guys will be at it again. If you think about it, they probably made a killing. Spend $40k or so buying links from high PR sites....get a few shills to rant about how they love your directory at this forum or that....and make $200-$300k before the PageRank rug gets pulled out from under you. Heck, they only needed 5000 or so suckers to fall for it....I'm sure they got at least that.
