i requested a site critique on thelist... nowhere does the result of 
that critique appear in my google results...

somehow my rankings aren't impacted... if i were a jerk, i'd even 
argue that the evolt.org critiques should easily be overcome in page 
ranks by any well-built site that is SE-friendly...

granted... all the better for users to see the site is different, and 
perhaps know the author cared enough to ask...?
