Tedster, sorry if it sounded like a pure adsense discussion. But the google search algorithms do have ads as a factor and the discussion was on search result pages of authority sites that also seem to have disguised (customized) ads as part of their product lists. Yet, neither above the fold disguised ads nor the fact that search result pages are allowed to be indexed and interlinked massively with other similar auto generated pages, seem to affect their ranking!
It was really difficult to keep the ad part of the discussion separate.
