My request to Google for PR reconsideration

This is what I had to say to them. Needless to say, I DESPISE Google at the moment, and may well remove their sh*tty Adsense ads from all my blogs. In fact, testicles to them! I think I'll shift this one over to Wordpress, forget PayPerPost, and start again from scratch. B*st*rds! Anyway, here's my email to them, which is somewhat restrained, given my level of anger!

I would like you to please reconsider the recent downgrading of the page ranking of this site from three to zero. I have had this blog for almost five years, and just one week ago, signed up to PayPerPost. I have only written four sponsored posts ever, and there are more than 500 non-sponsored posts on the site. As far as I can see, I have not broken any of the quality guidelines, so I really cannot understand why I am being punished so harshly for just four sponsored posts, which make up less than 1% of my blog. I have several hundred readers every week, and my blog is family-friendly, offers quality articles, contains no illicit material, I do not send out spam, and no-one is going to end up with malware, spyware, viruses or any other online menace, as a result of visiting my site.

Google is really harming its reputation by punishing ordinary, decent bloggers in such a manner. Why have I lost my page rank, when pornographers, suicide promotion sites and publishers of other objectionable material are allowed to keep theirs? I even use Adsense on my site, so it's not as if my four sponsored posts are doing any harm to Google. Please reconsider your decision, because what you have done is unfair and unjust. You are turning ordinary decent people into pariahs of the Internet, based on mysterious criteria that no-one knows or understands. FYI, I have removed all links to PayPerPost, apart from the ones included in the post entitled - I cannot remove those, or I will not receive payment. As much as I resent my freedom of speech being curtailed in this manner, I will not link to PayPerPost again, nor will I even mention them, seeing as Google seems to have a problem with people doing so. Thank you for your time.

I can't understand why the hell they have downgraded your blog siani. You should be going up from three given the increased number of links you have not being knocked back to zero.

A lot of blogs have been downgraded (I got knocked down from 5 to 4 despite having far more links). They really know how to alienate bloggers.
