I think WebPixie is correct in that it is a cause of the removal of the over optimisation protections for EMDs. That's probably the most intelligent comment in this entire thread.
The only problem is that we have optimised and built links to site knowing this protection was in place, but now we are suffering from the lack of it.
Wouldn't it just have made more sense to turn the dial down a little, devalue some of the links, etc, instead of getting rid of some many decent sites?
