Yes, where is ratzker? He resurected this thread 10 days ago with pdf about links. If he did not post that, the OS thread would just die...
Although ratzker joined in July, he only ever posted in this thread. I am wondering if he is connected with CanadianGuy.
Someone found what OS is doing. They wanted them to be penalised by Google. Maybe they even reported them, and it did not work, who knows. Then they used WebmasterWorld to ask for the site to be publicly reviewed (CanadianGuy).
WebmasterWorld members failed to find anything and discounted the links as a factor (mind you, the quantity of .edu links probably did not show any obvious spike in link acquisition, it appears it was link authority that offset the quantity that would perhaps be needed to rank for these phrases).
Anyway, the thread died... then ratzker, an user that never posted before, and who joined 6 months ago suddenly comes up with OS pdf and link sources, resurecting the thread. Lots of "WOW..." and "..if OS does not get whacked, that means this is a legimate method.." and a week later OS is gone.
Now of course, there are "other things found" on OS site. They perhaps needed to be found to further justify the penalty. I think you can find some kind of things on every site if you look at it with a microscope.
Uhm.. this really sounds like an industrial crime novel...
