Mr. Fewkes, I appreciate and understand your sentiment. But let us cling to our dreams in vain for a bit longer please.
I actually had a conversation with someone today about being so conservative that we miss opportunities to rise in the serps. The ones many label as spammers do quite well these days, and have for years. There's no glory in being white hat these days. It's like someone's senile old grandfather carrying on about 'Why when I was younger we used to get links with AUTHORITY...zzzzzzzzzzzzz".
That doesn't mean it's not worthwhile to try to stem the tide. Webmasters can if they're so inclined to do so.
