    There is a big difference between a manual penalty on one lonely page and a “granular” portion of a site. On a site with 22 million pages, a “granular” portion could be 500,000 pages. And how are you supposed to find the literal needle in a haystack without much guidance. It looks like http://blog.mozilla.org/respindola/about/ was originally listed as the example, not the cause. Obviously Matt Cutts stepped in and cleared things up but if I was Mozilla I would have been sweating hard!

    I agree with you

    Yeah, I was a concerned when I got the generic “http://www.mozilla.org/: User-generated spam” notice and “As a result, Google has applied a manual spam action to your site.” with no additional details. I assumed “your site” = http://www.mozilla.org and seeing that is the primary way that people get Firefox, I didn’t want to ignore it. :-)

    That single blog had spam filters added to it yesterday and it is mainly cleaned up now.

    Are they trolling Mozilla?

    It seems a manual penalty would be worthy of a manual notice. The generic notices should be reserved to automated triggers.
