Web retailer Overstock.com, which never does anything quietly, fired off a press release Monday announcing its release from the "penalty box" Google threw it into after it was caught violating the search engine's policies.
What's the penalty box? It's the time-out corner where Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) sends naughty websites that have tried to game its search algorithms.

The vast majority of Google's search results are automated. But the company can -- and often does -- take manual action to bury sites that are running afoul of its rules. Google's powerful webspam team serves as its search referees. Incur their wrath, and online oblivion follows.
