Who is Google to say how you can and cannot monetize your site under threat of banishment?
The owner of the search engine property, and until their users or some government entity tells them otherwise, they still have the right to decide they don't want to display sites overrun with ads on their search engine property. Which still belongs to them, whether it's got 20% share or 70% share or 99% share.
(And if you ask most non-publishing users, they're going to agree with fewer ads every time)
There's not a whole lot of point to pinning your hopes on Microsoft; they have made the wrong move at almost every single opportunity. If this were darts, they're only hitting the BOARD about once in every twenty tosses. They might get it right some day - but I for one probably won't still be alive to see it.
So I say again - if you are dependent on your web income, use common sense. Less is more. I have a business to run, and I for one would prefer to show fewer ads to more traffic, rather than the other way around.
