I recommend someone who has enough of a web-profile to start a "Day Without Adsense", where we all volunteer to remove Adsense for one day to send a message.
I'm interested, the problem is there are lots of low quality webmaster who will gladly smile while we get off their way for at least one day.
I see many torns but can't find the rose now, I mean, lots of problems are evident but can't still think of a smart complain or way out :/ anyway I agree that G created a problem admiting low quality websites from bad webmasters, things got worse when they were not coherent dealing with scrapers, enough people new that "creating content" was the key, suddenly the web got fed up with gazillion low content sites and G supposed to filter that out? I bet since adsense, Bing and Y saw a big increase on trash all over the web, like a virus.
Well, we don't know for sure if that's the case for HP, but I can tell you I created high quality content BUT since adsense allowed scrappers and said "ok" to lots of new "blogs", my content was copied all over the web.
It doesn't stop there. When G punished copied content, the scrappers began changing one word here and another there, but it was still my content. Suddenly creating new content for others to copy it wasn't fun, I kept thinking on new ways to block the already known scrapers. Reporting to G? I read about banned sites but all I saw in my experience was "warned sites" or banned domains and the scraper then bought the .NET, .ORG, etc.
My solution was first, to work harder, then come with ways to block scrapers, then... to stop caring. I know create content (not as often as before) but I just don't care. I went back to my roots, I started on this wanting to share... it paid well, some hobby sites became "authority" in some areas, I wanted chocolate but got strawberry instead, still happy. Sorry for the long post... I agree that G should feel the pressure but... how?
