with many cases i saw, they are marking valid backlinks as spam
@MasterOfPuppets maybe we are witnessing a very nasty side of their Disavow policy/plot/plan whatever you wanna call it... If a webmaster went looney about his/her backlinks and disavowed them and Google took them seriously without having a proper review mechanism with PROPER safeguards.
Thinking this is what happens when they rely so much on backlinks for their SERPs and they are so prone to link spammers despite all the tweaks in their Penguin algo... IMHO that is ;)
Their urgency to deal with it has side effects like the one we discuss now..
