It's no penalty, but I wanted them to remove these pages either way. This
was a contact opportunity where I have nothing to lose. Google Search
still refer around 100 people to my site every day. Google images refer
around 300 per day. As I said, there should be no penalty, but I wanted
them to take an overview and tweak if/as required.
I used to have better placements. If rank is an inverse function of number
of pages in a domain, this needs to be corrected. These machine vision ex-
periments got indexed without my awareness. As these are just heaps of
numbers, they will not add noise to the results, trust me.
