    • Test-ok agrees : if so...it could really hurt some of the prominent sites. Depending on how it's implemented.

    Your post made me do a bit of searching and something dawned on me looking at the results.
    Googles Gmail has a spam filter which could very well be used as a red flag (speaking of the content in these marked spam emails)
    And if it does set off a flag (because you know damn well Google can see everything in your g-mail account, addresses, body text, links) a person could spam the crap out of people with g-mail addresses and use their competitors links in the spam emails and let the people do all the work.

    sorry...sometimes my mind just takes off...and kp, didn't mean to derail your thread.

    Back on topic:
    Looks like there's a little bit on the subject but it all looks like speculation and guesses, and some sad ones at that.
    One says, it about a certain set of words, and on another it's about social media tricks.
    And some don't say anything but rather are just plain spam.

    Maybe I'll start a blog with what I mentioned above about g-mail and start a new rumor...maybe call it the up-coming 'Killer Whale' update.

    I hear the skunk one is going to be the BIG one - if our websites don't have scratch n sniff and smell of roses we could all be in big trouble.

    I just lost a #1 spot to someone with 18,000 Google +'s. They are all obviously fake and spam accounts. This would be a good Christmas present.

    What makes you think that's what it was?
