You couldn't be more wrong. I don't really care what you believe or act on for yourself, but I'm not letting it go when new people could be sidetracked into thinking *this* nonsense is the cause of their search engine issues. This is a red herring.
I don't understand what is the point you are trying to make.
To me it sounds that you are saying that at this point in time getting thousands of spammy links overnight doesn't carry any potential for google to give you the boot. Because this is exactly what you would get with a dmoz link - thousands of spammy links, overnight.
