google emailed a guy (in that earlier thread), telling him he needed to remove the backlinks before he got his ranking back. isnt that proof?
it came from google -- straight from the horses mouth.
Proof of what?
I agree that it may be proof that Google said (paraphrasing) "remove the backlinks before you get your ranks back"... but you don't need Google to email you anything to understand that...
It is public knowledge here... [support.google.com...]
What else does it factually prove?
Speculating about something is not proof.
