the whole reason to make this thread to get the attention wether if i was right or not that the wikipedia entries was inaccurate information.
Actually, this is a vastly used method in online marketing. The way Google works, automatically, you don't need to risk your own sites, instead you spam the competition, and Google does its "automatic" thing eventually, and devalues the competition. Been used for many many years now, and extremely effective.
The competing site thinks things are going ok, traffic is building, then at a given point, usually anything up to 12 months, Google will suddenly devalue the site and it drops of the face. Do that to enough of your competition, and you go up, your competitors have been punished, then it is their responsibility to get Google to lift automatic filtering, whilst now your site gets all the rewards for usually a much longer term.
Very effective, very dirty... but it works. Web results are an extremely competitive industry, and marketers will use all and any tactics to keep their clients as clients.
You are assuming something here Anthony, that someone is working negative SEO, the owner could have also hired some moron SPAM-E-O to drive traffic to his site, I would bet you will never know the true facts on this.
Your never going to really know who did this. No offence to Kaiser and I'm not saying it was him or anything, but it would have been a very crafty trick done to push lots of traffic his way to gain members fast.
