I know what you are saying SEONoob. I wasn't being critical of you. I am agreeing and there are many others who would also agree.
I have a personal non-commercial project that will roll out (sooner or later) that I was going to totally ban google from. However now I'm thinking maybe I might allow them but serve googlebot what I want so I can maintain full control. If the site gets banned no skin off my nose because I was going to ban them anyway.
That's well and fine for something that is for my own interest but I just wouldn't do it with an unsuspecting client's site.
