results dropped - new pfi?

a number of my results have dropped (disappeared) from lycos.co.uk over a number of domains. they are still in alltheweb database.

I'm wondering if this is something to do with the new pay for inclusion that lycos uk is offering.

Surely they are not going to want a double payment? to lycos.com and .co.uk??

anyone experienced this?

It could be a filtering issue or a database update going through. I noticed a generic term is not showing in the SERPs, yet.

I noticed that not all the results dropped: the drop refers mainly to commercial categories; something similar to L$ and Zeal categories.
