So, how does it affect you when you have to ban a good friend of yours?
Provide or get advice on everything SEO, ask questions, gain confirmation or just become apart of a friendly, like minded community who love SEO and Online Marketing.
This is probably how I feel. I wouldn't like it, but I would have to show that friend or not, they have to respect the rules.I would treat them the same regardless. They know what they are doing, if they break the rules, they break the rules. You have to set an example.
