perils of a shared IP address?

I read a quote below.  I have no problems with a shared IP, since my
business plans are small.  But let's say you are sharing an IP address
with a company that is acting wrongly.  Google could block that
company from appearing on their search engines, and in the process you
will get blocked too.
Is this true?

"Several days ago one of my websites disappeared from google (no
information available).  After months of hard work there was good
placement and a significant number of visitors who spent time on the
site viewing its non commercial content.  The site remains in all the
other search engines.

In the past couple of days I've read message board posts by people
like me who are trying to figure out what google sin they committed.
Are any of us victims of collateral damage--shared IP's banned by
for the sins of others?"

Good question.
I think they block by domain since they index your site pages relative to
the domain as opposed to indexing it relative to the ip.

The vast majority of web sites are on shared servers.

From your questions it seems like you may need to hire a consultant,
that's someone who will establish the entire on-line presence for you.
