I keep vacillating between anger and self-pity, and I don't see much value in either.
Why? Because I've been on the web since '95, have played by the rules, had value in my pages, and was crushed.
When I get my focus back, I may very well abandon any remaining sense of morality, as I feel like a real chump for not grabbing the candy while I was in the store.
Unless something happens very soon to change my opinion, Google no longer deserves respect. And for every site they knock down, we'll come back with 2 more. We'll build 'em quick & dirty.
It's all about survival now ~ the war is on.
