quality raters ban entire websites? That would be quite something. You are saying subjective opinions are now used not just in lowering rankings but totally removing your website from the index? just on whether a quality rater likes the site or not? that would be extraordinary and i cant believe thats the case. Lets not forget the Googles nature is to automate as far as possible, banning on quality would fly in the face of that. It must be assumed that this site has been banned for abuse, i dont see any mileage in giving more subjective opinions on it. Perhaps start looking at off-site factors?
when i need life saving heart bypass surgery i wont be selecting my surgeon by how nice his suits are, i will be asked how good his surgery is.
BTW, the site in his profile has not been de-indexed.
