@ mhansen. I totally agree. No one will use if unless there are sucess stories. Especially when you consider that most blogs and forums the opinion is do not trust it do not use it. I think to gain everyones confidence they will need to recover some / lots of sites.
The links I have disavowed are from an article that I paid someone to write and submit back in 2006 or so. I can honestly say that I did not realise that 300 crappy article sites would pick it up as well. Lots of which are so obviously owned by the same person as filenames and numbers are the same and site design is the same. I will be glad to get rid of them - and have tried on and off for the last 2 years to do so.
I am hoping these are exactly the reason google is still penalising my site. I have removed everything else that is suspect. Everything else is and always has been beyond my control and I just have to hope that google realises this.
