Happy New Year Everyone!

Well heck! My last comment yielded such a great answer from +Eric Wu, I thought I would ask one last question that has been on my mind. Thanks again Eric!

Can a super authoritative site hurt their rankings on a specific keyword by using the same anchor text for internal links pointing to a category page?

For example: The site I work for has a category page for "Whey Protein". We have published over 30,000 health and fitness articles that, many of which, mention "whey protein" and link to that category page with the same anchor text: whey protein. The end result is that we have an abnormal amount of internal links pointing to that page when you compare back-links of the other pages ranking for that keyword.

Is it possible this could negatively affect us? I don't think it would, but I thought I would double check.

Does anyone have any experience with Dust.js? 

I work for a commerce company and our IT team is pushing to switch our JSP server-side templates over to client-side templates using a JavaScript library called Dust.js. 

This really looks like it could be cloaking to me. However, LinkedIn seems to have implemented this and is doing fine so far. 

We have asked this question over at seoMoz and have not had any responses from anyone yet.

Here is the link for more details:

Any help or a good "pointing in the right direction" would be very helpful. Thank you!
