I disagree incrediBILL,
I remember the days before Adsense and believe many webmasters were getting peanuts. It has brought alot of money to small time publishers so although you can disagree with what they are doing, do remember the fact Google has done webmasters many favors.
The problem is as i see it is the sheer domination by group projects, before 1,2 or small teams of people were producing content many years ago. When you have people that have ideas multiplied by ten to hundred times you can certainly see abuse and it is a clear abuse. Question is i always find interesting is how can 1 site be ranking for every type of topic like these sites do. If your an everything site you should be considered not as important as a niche.
Going back to my first point, its not bullying, the fact remains you dont have to rely on Google for traffic, this was always going to be a highly volatile business.
