Sorry for multiple posts.
"a hitherto relatively minor "weakness" or "transgression" or perceived ( real or otherwise "spammyness"..and EMDs can be an indicator of that ) coupled with one or two other factors can put a domain into the "leave it out for now""
Good point. Makes sense EMD being added to some other low quality indicators causing the hard demotion.
Which would mean its not just "low quality links" or "low quality content" or etc etc. Its simply an EMD with a certain amount of any of those other factors that hits a site.
