Kingston is getting a bad reputation. Macintouch points here instead: RAMJET Inc.: Quality Computer Memory.
I wrote the above in 2004 -- about 9 years ago. Back then my tech blog was more of a microblog - rather like my current app.net stream.
Today I received a curious email, ostensibly from a ramjet address. Perhaps it's some kind of campaign to smear Ramjet? Here's what it says:
We have tried to contact you several times regarding the link on http://tech.kateva.org/2004/01/ramjet-inc-only-trustworthy-source-of.html to our site http://www.ramjet.com. This link is in violation of Google's Webmaster Guidelines and must be removed in order to bring our site into compliance with Google's terms.I wonder what the heck he means? All I can think of is that the original link included a Macintouch referral parameter - http://www.ramjet.com/?src=macintouch.
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 include your site information in our submission.
I removed the referral parameter. Otherwise, I can't imagine revising 9 year old blog post, or that this could in some way relate to Google's Webmaster Guidelines.
Smells fishy, but I can't figure out the angle.
