More often than not, Google's ads are up in your face more than webmasters' ads.
Google will answer this way: if you design your search engine, don't index Google's serps pages :)
Something is changing especially in the UK serps.
Alyssa, some of those those sites mentioned in the Warrior Forum are the type that Google loves to outright ban or give a -50 penalty. But they have dozens and dozens of sites so they play their odds. I'd be surprised if Google let most of them out.
I still think that Google sought to hurt the sites caught in the algo. Like when they catch you buy links that penalize you for a while to send a message, even if you remove the links the next day. Makes sense if the review was manual...
