mhansen and wwconnect,
no one said to block Google or starve because you refuse to do business with them :) . It has to do with the larger picture, what their strategy is leading to, maybe not today but 1-2-3 years from now. You can make money (while and how they let you) and still push for changes at the same, albeit secretly. I wouldn't have a /google-sucks/ section on my biz site of course, but they are other ways.
So you can hope Google puts you on #1, optimize for them, use and or like adsense, gmail...youtube and STILL hate the direction they are taking. If that's the case of course, everyone sees it differently.
