By all means block the bad guys, but why on earth block the good ones? Surely they should be looking for ways to capitalize on Google, not aim at Google's head and shoot themselves in the foot.
It is all very depressing, just when you think someone has a chance of fighting back they show a completely blinkered view.
All money has to be on M$ now, at least they know how to beg, borrow and steal the competitor's gusto!
= multiple domains, all redirecting to the same sub domain. We all get penalized for such a set up. Why not ov too?
I doubt it's a hand removal. To me it looks like a major server mess they are doing at ov - bad redirects, robots.txt, duplicates etc.
With a PR of 10 the Google SERPs would really foul up the whole PR system if those links counted as backlinks. I guess this proves that linking to your SERPs really is a waste of time, but it helps the SERPs get a nice PR.
Not only that, but because the SERPs on Google are blocked from bots, it keeps the PR on the site. (not that it needs help) ;)
