We welcome such links from high quality and respected websites such as yours ... penalising sites that are seen to have low quality links to it
In other words, "If you pay us $5, we will consider your site to be high quality. otherwise, we will consider it low quality and 'report' to Google as such."
I previously said the easier way would be to remove any links to the site that sent such a message. More likely, I would add a bit of hassle and forward the message to Google.
I'm sure others would take it a step further and report it to the police as an extortion attempt.
And some might even argue that the message crosses state lines and advocate bringing the Feds into the fray.
What do you think?:)
I think it would be very entertaining to read about. :)
