Case in point? .. I pulled a very well written AUP off of a site a while back and Google threw a fit 20 minutes after the fact .. the entire site dropped 20+ positions and stayed there for 6 weeks (The AUP was loaded an hour after it was removed)
That's insane as AUP, Privacy and Legal pages are typically boilerplate stuff and if Google were to issue a site-wide demerit, not just give the page a demerit, they've effectively put anyone selling boiler plate documents, or giving them away for that matter, out of business if they damage every site that uses them.
