That’s bizarre that some website would think they have a right to NOT be linked to!
Patrick,There is no intention to file a takedown notice. We simply believe your backlinks are negatively impacting our ranking. This is the first step in following Google Search Console protocol. No further communication will be made from me.Best Regards,Alex DickinsonTribal Lending Enterprises
