Which characteristic do you think got turned off Googles link evulation?

A week or 2 ago Google announced that they where turning off a characteristic of link evulation. So any ideas to which?

Quote:
"Link evaluation. We often use characteristics of links to help us figure out the topic of a linked page. We have changed the way in which we evaluate links; in particular, we are turning off a method of link analysis that we used for several years. We often rearchitect or turn off parts of our scoring in order to keep our system maintainable, clean and understandable."
