Huh... I am supposed to average around 2.2 for [not provided] but every time I do a google search for "not provided" I never see my site there...
I doubt they would, but keeping in mind it's an algo (basically a pattern matching system) and the particular site in the OP sounds like it could "fit the pattern" of paid outbound linking so I think it could be causing an issue.
My mind is fading here, but I think that in a recent matt cutts video called something like "What's in store for seo" he said something to the effect of making it more difficult for upstream sites in relation to link spam.
maybe this is somehow related?
