No affiliation whatsoever. A lot of people talk about stuff they hear, and then like parrots they repeat it. I have seen this on other forums for years. People repeat stuff without ever actually knowing something is true. I actually test and monitor. I'm trying to give people honest feedback.
If I see somebody with a good service, I do try to go out of my way sometimes to let people know that. When you see me get very quiet, then you should be concerned.
I have standard contextual links for my first tier. I would never try to get crap links indexed as those do get de-indexed. If people are trying indexing on crap links, then they are going to get de-indexed no matter what they do. Hopefully they are smart enough to understand that.
Yeah, I'm not a bad guy. But if you have seen completely false information repeated over the years in seo forums that I have seen, it would make you nauseated.
I was trying to throw water on a fire that really doesn't exist. Users have to know what they are doing, and general statements that are not true must be called out.
