    Many of the exploits here are straight up illegal - with regards to XSS, obtaining accessing to webmaster tools, uploading robots files, etc...

    That they are, but it's a great piece. These are all tactics that you need to be aware of and know the signs of in-case someone tries to take out your sites.

    I don't think the idea of the piece was to give ideas or a "to do" list. I took away some good tips and signs to look for if I feel that I've been targeted by Blackhat SEO's that want to take me down. While we might be completely white hat and work under the best possible ethics, we have to remember that not everyone else does, and we need to be aware of what to look for in tactics to be able to withstand and prevent them.
