Thanks for your response.

It appears as if it is an old page. They have about 400
lines of hidden repeated keyword text at the bottom of their home
page (no exageration) and a copyright from '96.

If an 'unfortunate' resubmission were to occur.... would it be
done for each .html document or just for the base URL? Is one way
more effective than another?

20 consecutive/redundant listings are a waste of time and space
for everyone...including Alta Vista. Putting 19 out of them
thier misery isn't as much of a "crime" as it is a service.

Lastly, are there any potential backlashes to this approach?

Thanks Jim,
