I think it is Google's way of forcing people to buy AdWords, IMHO.
Don't think so either. They kicked out a log of people who were running affiliate sites because they want to be the main affiliate.
This is just another attack on the affiliate business model.
That's OK, what goes around comes around and I've lost count of the people I've convinced that Google is the big evil and they should switch their search engine. Slowly but surely Google will regret waging war on the very webmasters who made them what they are today.
