Is Google Cracking Down on Directories?

Recently it was posted at V7 that Webatlas was banned by Google. When in fact a search for the domain in Google does appear that it was removed from the index. But, after talking with the owner and creator of the site, it seems that she wanted to redirect http://webatlas.org to http://www.webatlas.org and she used a 302 redirect which we all know from the Business.com instance that Google treats as spam. In other words, it's a problem/ glitch with Google, not Webatlas. Now, I'd like to see how quickly it will return to the index. She emailed them and hopefully they will get back to her soon with reinclusion.

Once again, directories will be banned or penalized for the exact same reasons that a normal site will be penalized or banned. And not just because they are a directory. Google & Y! knows crap directories from quality ones, I assure you. :)
