Do I think a $200 trick would take down a solid authority site, of course not. But it could certainly take out a site that might have some issues and is not yet established itself as a trusted source.
So if you are already doing shady stuff that should remain trusted because you got away with it?
If you have garbage all over your lawn don't blame the neighbors for adding a few candle wrappers.
In this logic my question is... if you already know you have shady stuff in your domain... why would you blame an imaginary competitor?
<added>In fact, if you already have shady stuff, why would you test more shady stuff?</added>
