It makes sense to me, that google would just increase its notifications. You've lost rankings becuase of these issues.
People then would make better sites, fix the problems with their sites and then the public, webmasters and google would be happy.
You are using what is generally known as "common sense". I have been saying here for years that if Google were an individual, they would need deep therapy to try to understand why they so thoroughly enjoy imposing penalties. From my POV, they are dysfunctional and I mean that literally. Somewhere, there is a screw loose. It is so obvious that the entire web would be better off if there was some guidance ~ NOT exact "here's what you need to do to fix your website" stuff ~ just general GUIDANCE via GWT to help webmasters understand what went wrong. I guess we'll never see it, which in large part is why so many are hoping & praying for a competition that can knock them down a few pegs. But you know, we may never see that either.
