May I? I want to keep this as short and as focused as possible. Both Sgt_Kickaxe and netmeg are expressing frustration but from opposite points of view. We as a collection of members have to have empathy for each.
Personally I don't mind seeing negative comments about google popping into any topics related to google and their practices. It gives me comfort that it's not just me feeling like that and by having it reinforced from time to time it also helps me to realize I am not becoming cynical because it's not only me.
For those that are bothered by it how can you have not developed "negative comment blindness" by now? Just ignore it like I ignore the comments that glorify google when they clearly don't deserve it.
Overall I agree with most of what Leosghost just posted in that last one -- a select few go too far to prevent us from biting the hand that feeds them. If our negative comments were allowed to gain momentum and it eventually contributed to less people using google that leads to less ads served and less profits for AdSense publishers.
