The blunder is the way in which Google does it. It's a paradox, in order to get a popular site you need to have a popular site otherwise people can't find your site.

In terms of Black hat vs White hat SEO there's not really much to it. There's no set line when it comes to defining which is which. Technically if you had any part in creating a back link to your website then you are committing Black hat SEO.

Unfortunately google is what they describe themselves as. Popularity judges, which means like in High School the cool kids are cool and the uncool kids aren't worth anything.

I don't think it's a blunder. Google is only trying to remove spam from the search engine.

I think Pixel Eden has answered kathygreen's question in detail. Google wants to remove spamy websites from its search results, it is appreciable but the way they decide (Recent update of algorithms) it is blunder.
