Sandboxed right after using StumbleUpon

    I discovered and used StumbleUpon on my sites main index page, and a few deep pages, I started Sunday - after ranking great in Google all year, as of today my site has disappeared from the engine - StumbleUpon must trigger a sandbox curse, like a spam tool etc - Darn the flood of traffic for a few days was definately NOT worth the outcome of getting sandboxed for who knows how long again !

    Well, I think it wasn't due to StumbleUpon. You missinterpreted the reason of sandbox.

    I think so to. Stumbleupon does not cause a sandbox effect because if it did many other people would be saying it here.

    I guess you guys were right, seems StumbleUpon was not the reason I got sandboxed, looks like Google does the flip-flop almost on a regular basis now.
    Thanks fellows for pointing out to me the other posts on the sandbox curse....
