Google hand jobs

I'm seeing Google giving more and more hand jobs every day
Story Text:

I have plenty of sites and I've seeing sub domains and directories being completely removed from the Google index (no PR, back links, cache or record in the serps)

I know the sub domain is on the 'spammy' side of SEO when compared to the rest of the site.

Usual turnaround time is 3 weeks

An interesting point I've seen raised is that where a domain is seen to be suddenly acquiring too much content, Google starts to delist the content, then start reindexing again.

Seem to be seeing this in action with one of the sites I monitor - interesting to see.

Not reported with subdomains - though I've heard reports since Dec 16 last year of Google getting really aggressive with subdomains.
