wordpress and phpnuke...there might be more. I looked for this on the forum and didn't see this posted anywhere.

Does the phrase Search Engine Spam mean anything? ;-)

Big template site too went the other day :) nobody escapes the algo no matter how big.

I think they had a few fishy subdomains. That guy is not bright though, he threatened to pull Adsense banners unless G restored his site.
(still on cached version)
"Note: If in a few days phpnuke.org isn't re-added to google's search engine I'll publish here any action I'll take against this, including (but not limited to) the AdSense banners removal from all my sites. Thanks for your support."

If I was a G engineer, I wouldn't have re-included it.

As I read it, it's not him that threatened to pull Adsense (and/or more), but rather the operator of the website mentioned in the "blog" post.

In fact, he says, "...but I need to say that nobody should take any anticipated and precipitated measures."

"The Note" part it's only available to the admin in PHP-NUKE. He posted the person's comment and added his own note. I think so anyway ;)

If the weatherman says it's going to rain tomorrow, put away your rain gage?

Actually I posted on this yesterday but the thread never made it- not sure why. I thought it was interesting that wordpress was completely gone from G -no listing at all, and now that they removed the offensive content they are back in G. I've never seen a site return from the ashes so quickly.
