Some people are even willing to swim on their own and try to find their own advertisers, just like before Google came around.
Actually, some of us never stopped getting advertisers on our own and we were selling that ad space long before AdSense or Google. All AdSense ever did was give every webmaster on the planet the false sense of entitlement that every web site, regardless of merit, should make money. That's Google's legacy and we've had to put up with the whining about one cent clicks and earning $10/mo ever since.
People want to jump ship?

I didn't think so, people are just full of ship :)
