What about webmasters that don't have a clue about scrapers, disavow links, or any of this nonsense, does Google just throw the ignorant under the bus because ignorance is no excuse?
That has always been thinking. It's like giving those who do SEO full-time competitive advantage over authentic website publishers who simply create content and attract links.
Why feed the link mania? Why not simply stop talking about links so much and quietly discount those that have no value / look bad.
