Official Witch Hunting Season Opens

So, apparently Google has recently changed their guidelines to include a nice little tidbit about Why should I report paid links to Google? Matt Cutts did discuss this on his blog before, but making it official Google policy is something else altogether. Does anyone else sense the oncoming bloodlust stemming from giving people a free for all outlet where they can backstab their competitors?

Google works hard to ensure that it fully discounts links intended to manipulate search engine results, such link exchanges and purchased links. If you see a site that is buying or selling links, let us know by clicking Report spam in the index under the Tools menu in Webmaster Tools. We’ll use your information to improve our algorithmic detection of paid links.

McCarthy would be proud.
