HRoth, thank you for sharing that kind of valuable insight.
I was glad to quit doing this, as I got burned out and disgusted with how much the whole system is broken. I could never have made a living doing this if my stuff had not been passed almost without question practically everywhere.
So good for Google for recognizing it. It isn't their responsibility to solve it, but this is taking a positive step to stop being part of the problem.
