All those funny posts about google schmoogle grammar and quality checking of articles?
LOL - even Maulana believed that ALN was hit because of content.
The truth is - those posts about content quality are bullshit.
I've seen that those turd pushing google ass lickers at seomoz published an analysis of some black hat seo insurance website who relied heavily on ALN.
Well it turned out that if you analyse backlinks of this domain - almost every single ALN blog that was linking to it was banned.
This is the rat. They did not target ALN specifically, they just went to his backlinks and banned every spammy blog they've found.
All because of those snake oil sellers seomoz wankers.
Changing ALN submission rules, rates, checking grammar won't change a shit so maulana should not listen to those little screamers with 3 PR2 domains that demand content control - doing that won't help in this case! It will only make ALN less efficient.
There will be occasional slaps like this - they do not have an algo for networks yet.
