I found it interesting that the article was decisively SITE specific (ie:would you trust this site) as opposed to page specific.
It leads me to wonder if all sites were just pushed through the filter once to get a ranking or if this filter will repeat itself on every new page, repeatedly.
If it's the former, a site having gone through the filter and gotten a poor grade may as well be put out to pasture, for now.
An entire site receiving a poor grade leads me to believe that even new HIGH quality pages will not change that grade, at least until the filter is run again.
I find "one time pass" filters highly unfair because they catch different sites at different stages in development. Rank a new site poorly, before you know what would be published a month later, and it's conceivable that the site is permanently harmed by this filter ?!
