8Wellsphere scandal & blog network scam- Request a GOOGLE PENALTY

Wellsphere scandal & blog network scam- Request a GOOGLE PENALTY

I propose that we petition Google to request that Wellsphere be penalized in search engine results. This practice is unethical. Google penalties can defeat their immoral business strategy.
