Posting this more as a resource for people to use as a reference when writing articles on how Google goes against what they preach.
If I remember well, people from Chrome were caught buying links.Google is huge and has big divisions who are relatively independent. Im sure those people from Maps don't know anything about new SEO updates. Just like those outside Youtube are not aware of all YT features. I know guy who works for mobile department, he has never heard of Matt Cutts.
It's a big company and that's npt strange in any way. However it wouldn't be a bad idea that anyone posting articles on Googles behalf got a quick breifing in the webmaster guidelines.
Meanwhile "Manual Actions" have been initiated. :D
