it's a country based directory affiliated with one of the big ones. Even the place pointer in the description was converted to 'local'.
Well, it's not high traffic anyway and for 'art' I'm still ranking # 1 in this directory.
It smells like a competitor/editor was involved.
If this is happening though than I wonder who is the victim in all this. I'm sure it's the person who is doing the actual searching and who is eventually presented with very biased results. I'm convinced that if this is getting more common than in the end we all loose.
