all the subdomaining strategy does it so immunize the good stuff from the bad stuff.
It allows you to immunize good from bad. But it also speeds up the reevaluation considerably, so is much more useful for some situations.
If a site only has 10% "quality" content, you can pull that 10% out to a subdomain and maybe see a quick recovery. So you aren't stuck with trying to weed out 90% low quality content. And don't have to wait months to see if you removed enough bad content to recover.
It is much faster, and easier to test. Gives us a much better tool to reverse engineer. So in that regard, they might shut it down soon as Netmeg predicts.
