There are financial implications for them if we removed the links, so their judgment is skewed.
We have pulled all the links.
Was that the right call?
A lot of people, including myself, have seen the -50 come with what seems to be a preset duration of 3 months, allowing you ample time to fix the problems. For me, it was exactly 3 months: Jan 11 to Apr 11 last year. If you found a connection (similar penalty) between your links and the link network, removing them was probably a good idea -- especially if they were new links.
crobb, after 90 days it goes away no matter what or only if you have removed the bad incoming links?
