[edit reason] per author's request, added question to the community [/edit]
Spam works, blackhat works, we all see it.
They are being allowed to do a lot of this BECAUSE we haven't proactively pushed for any two-way communication.
@goodroi: Those comments are not useless, they make me lots of money by distracting my potential competitors from doing real research
@diberry: you need to convince them THEY will benefit from it
@seoskunk: Perhaps now is a time for hitchhiker to create a new thread "Questions for Google Guy" and let people post their questions.

I believe 'Negative SEO/toxic links/disavowing' should have been something you vehemently guarded against. (The concept of any link or relationship as being 'negative' rather than 'ignored') No external entity should have been able to affect our websites negatively. Why did you choose to allow this to happen, when it has now clearly resulted in yet-another-way to game the playing field?
What the h*** else can we offer them?
we might manage to offer a fresh perspective

There's a great deal (thousands) of whitehat webmasters who are being penalised to non-existence (or the effective equivalent). Sites that have demonstrated good practice, satisfied audiences and neither betray or mislead users. This is unacceptable, what are you going to do about it?
Well, I hate to say it, but: "answers rather than questions."
Google could learn a lot from Bing. There was a time when there were rumours that Bing copied google's results. Lol, they wouldn't touch the G results with a bargepole now, Bings are far better. What happened google? Get a grip or prepare to be ousted by the people who REALLY DO run the internet, the millions of decent webmasters and users who make the internet such a wonderful, varied, vibrant place.The USERS run the internet.
Has anything changed from the result of Google Bashing? Nope.
