It might be difficult to judge. Maybe the defensive side of
the story was neglected for brevity.
PS - I strongly agree with your previous post on this
thread. Several valid points were made. To add just one:
'third-party' links that are bought for SEO purposes subvert
otherwise-fine SERP's. That in itself is an abomination
which harbours the death of an Open and democratic Web --
one of those aims that WordPress, being standards-compliant,
Free and suitable for all, strives to address.
