Then you should not call them paid links. ;) It confuses the discussion to name-call. Just call it what it is and let's discuss what is actually happening.
I just got off the plane, half drunk and had to pop a vicodin to soothe my aching back.
Is it my inebriated state of mind....or did I read a statement very similar to what you wrote, waaaaay back in 2007?
To OP: Very few things on the internet (especially in search) "are forever". Sooner or later your competitor will take a hit. Instead of running out, attempting to snitch on him/do neg. SEO/etc...
Why don't you focus on building your site? Or if you have nothing to do....create ANOTHER website to rank for the same keyword. I'm pretty sure if your competitor has half a brain in his head....and is using spammy tactics....he probably has 2-3 similar sites waiting in the wings.
Don't make the same mistake I made, back in 2007 when I had a site that was pulling in $50k/mo.
The "good times" eventually come to an end.
