What next? You came across a notification in one of your client website/or your own website and all your fun you did on weekend, your whistle, your song, your mood, etc. vanished in a second. You think that this world is no more for you. You start thinking about what will you do now. Your bosses or clients will ABUSE you as much as they can. You prepare yourself to get ABUSED. One question you will ask from god is that, WHY ME? WHY YOU CHOSEN ME ONLY? WHY YOU ALWAYS BEATS ME WITH YOUR STICK? and you start remembering all bad things happened with you before and you conclude that you have the worst luck than any one else in this world.
All this messed story above is due to one terrifying notification you saw in Google webmaster tools about your website penalty. It is the worst message/notification one can expect.
