Some very skilled/good webmasters may decide to look for another job because don't have the stomach for risk/stress of wake up someday without his main revenue source. Even doing very nice job have no guarantee. Every site owner relying on google traffic/adsense know the terrible feeling. Some important niches can't live without search traffic anymore. Because the Google changed the way of find your needs. Few need watch and bookmark good sites, or learn surfing its content page by page. You search everthing, and everything is by demand.
By the other side, always will have many bad intentioned people willing do anything to grab any penny. These ones have very strong stomach, because most of then have nothing to lose. Don't have a better oportunity to win money.
The panic/insegure atmosfere tends attract the bad guys.
Also the google relies on statistics of the user experience. We all know, the mass hardly likes the best technical sites, the best music, the most important issues.... they prefer the superficial, stupid, futile or "for dummies howto"... The theory of give what the mass want is beautiful... not in real world.
