Correct, but those who write these algorithms have.
And I'm sure that's what they do.. sit around all day and think up ways to be more arrogant...
email lists sites that I no longer run ads to and haven't for a long time but they want me to fix the landing pages to those sites
No live, arrogant person reviewed that or this would never have been an issue to begin with. You got caught up in an algo that was either, 1) outdated or 2) not monitored or 3) friggin' obsolete. The simple fact that you weren't running ads on those sites should have immediately removed you from any list you might have been placed on.
I'm not seeing arrogance here - I'm seeing incompetence. On googles part.
