Link removal requests again.
I received 2 emails from candy.com’s link removal service again yesterday, and I actually did respond. I’ll publish both emails, and my response.
Subject: URGENT: Please Respond; Help Needed for Google Penalty
Hello, We have tried to contact you several times regarding the link to our site
http://lifes-adventures.me/post/44392138219/thursday-13-2. This link is in
violation of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines and must be removed in order to
address the penalty against our site. We are assembling a reconsideration request and will be submitting it to
Google, soon. Again, all links which we could not remove will be included in
the information we submit. Please remove the link from your site and notify us when this has been done,
so that we do not have to include your site information in our submission. Thank you,
and there’s this one, which I responded to:
Subject: Follow-up Request. Please Respond.

Hello, We are following up regarding the link to our site http://www.candy.com/
from http://lifes-adventures.me/post/44392138219/thursday-13-2. We
appreciate your efforts to promote our website; however, we have been
contacted by Google, notifying us that our site is not in compliance with
their terms. We wish to seek reconsideration as soon as possible and must have this link
addressed in order to bring our site into compliance. Please note, as part
of our reconsideration request, we have to report to Google any link we are
unable to repair. Please add a rel=”nofollow” or remove our link from this page and any other
page on your site. If you have any questions, please let us know.
Both of these emails were sent yesterday, I responded to the second one with this:

Please go ahead and report the link to Google as an irreparable link.
I’m not going to remove it, and I don’t care enough to add a
rel=nofollow tag to a link I published 4 years ago. I don’t have a
page rank anyway, (it’s literally listed as n/a, so I won’t see any
SEO penalties from this, and if I do, oh well. I’m not one to care
about SEO anyway, because I’m just a personal blogger, who mainly does
it for fun. I’ll see to it that I never link to your site again, and
I’ll never recommend your site to anyone looking to order candy
online. I’ve actually never ordered from your site, and prefer another
site instead, and yes I’ve linked too them without rel=nofollow, and
no… they haven’t sent me any ridiculous link removal notices like
