Interesting comments on wordcount. How many sites have you seen where the 'real' content is just a list of items, but there's a wikipedia length 'article' tagged into the footer? Everybody (including Google) knows that no-one will read that stuff!
As for thin content, 500 words is about the standard 'quoted' length of an article, and that's plenty of text to throw into a spam analyser.
