  • routinely being (anti-)helpfully used by blackhat SEO to dump competitors,
  • that is inherently retroactive, i.e. doomed to always lag behind the newly invented spamming techniques and approaches,
  • dumping legit users web resource owners never see
  • is illegal for use in Germany and other EU countries,
  • etc.
