Netmeg - Ha, ha. I think you are right!
Esp., since we cannot even control the fonts, in spite of being told we can.
And, Google MUST display ALL their inventory. Many publishers don't want ALL their inventory - there is good stuff, and not-so-good stuff. Google lets the webmaster block the not-so-good stuff. I think that they INTEND to let us block the not-so-good stuff, and EXPECT US TO. Webmasters who don't block the not-so-good stuff, get served the not-so-good stuff. Google has a lot of not-so-good stuff, that MUST BE SERVED. Are YOU going to do it?
Actually, I like the Google policy - "let the webmasters sort it out." That's what I try to do. I believe it must be done. After all, they do give us the tools.
In EVERY case, Google wants us to believe that what is best for them, is ALWAYS best for us. How long have you been doing AdSense? Wanna buy a bridge in Brooklyn? Three ad blocks, three link units, and three search units per page? I think not. Jumpin' Jack Flash all over the place? No thank you.
