Google death penalty - on probation

Update: BMW has removed the webspam and Google has put back into the index.

Comments has now been put on probation for similar reasons, as Google's Matt Cutts writes in his blog. He also shows off an example of what BMW Germany's doorway pages looked like. Very reminiscent of online casino sites and the like...

Just do the standard.
