Hi,

All content on our site is user generated. As the link is part of the 
user generated content in a story that is over 7 years old, I'm not 
going to modify it in any way.

If google punishes my site in rankings I don't care about, because of a 
valid link to a site, then google is broken. Or maybe if people like you 
hadn't been trying to game the system for the last 15 years you wouldn't 
be in such trouble now.

Kind regards,

hulver.

don't link to that site without also saying spammy things on the same page, eg: cheap viagra, canadian meds, c1al1s, cool free ringtones, singles in your area, 1 millionth visitor, etc.

You get the idea.

...that if they really wanted to, they can disavow the backlink without any input from you.
