GG reponds to a member reporting that a 200-page site was dropped from the index overnight.

GG's response is interesting, in my opinion. As another member noted, it seems like he is equating "key-word stuffed links" with "a lot of affiliate" links. While it is well known that key-wording stuffing can get a site banned, banning a site for affiliate links would be a new thing - though somewhat consistent with recent Google updates...

Abigail, do you have a lot of links/keywords on a page that could look like stuffing? For example, if a page is pretty fair but then has 200-300 keyword-stuffed links, I wouldn't be surprised if that would go over a threshold at some point. Do you have a lot of those sorts of links, or affiliate links or something similar on your site?
