Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
So you are in the right for willfully killing someone's child? No pity? You don't slow down?No pity. No slowing down. I have been known to swerve at the last moment. Hopefully it will shock them from doing it again in the future. I do the same with cars who pass a red light at crossroads. As soon as I have a yellow, my foot goes down. If a car is passing in front of me and I happen to hit it, then so be it. It will be his fault for passing a red.
How many times a year do you run people down?None. They get out of the way... but it rarely happens anyway. Going back to your original point about bus drivers knocking someone over. Why is it the bus driver's fault for the person walking out into the road without looking ? Why is he/she to blame for someone else's supidity.
In Europe and the USA it's a common perception that if you link to the source of a piece of content that it's ok to publish online It's actually a common misunderstanding worldwide that if something is published online, literally publicly available, that it's ok to re-publish
I'm calling publishers with over 100k page views PER DAY that has over 1.5% Ctr to come forward. Then I will agree with your statement.
A high traffic site should never have less than 1.5% CTR. But WTF do I really know as I'm just basing this on my observations...which are very limited given how many sites I have AdSense on and how many sites there are with AdSense.
Nobody in this forum - nobody - can speak with authority about what is normal or average for any sites other than their own, no matter what they think or want the rest of us to think. Remember that. Only Google has that information.
Looks like last straw for cash grab.
So I have opened 1 account for each site, with different names and bank accounts, a lot safer ! I don't trust the robbers anymore...
I never slow down when people walk across the road when us drivers have a green. I make the buggers move.
You find it hard to believe I keep my account clean?
I'm squeaky clean as I don't mess with the mortgage payments.
IMO, Webmaster Welfare (AdSense) should be treated with respect as long as it keeps paying the bills! ;)
Expecting people to know who owns the copyright to a content and link only to the right sources or never link to that content at all is going too far IMO. How do people online know who owns the copyright to a piece of content? They link to it because they find it relevant and cool. The real copyright owner can in several times be decided only by a court of law.

Here attention is awakened; and our whole souls are intent upon the first appearance of the Hero. Some readers may perhaps be offended at his making his entré in so disadvantageous a character as that of a thief. To this I plead precedent.
We may remember ... that in Virgil's poem, almost the first light in which the Pious Ćneas appears to us, is a deer-stealer; nor is it much excuse for him, that the deer were wandering without keepers; for however he might, from this circumstance, have been unable to ascertain whose property they were; he might, I think, have been pretty well assured that they were not his.
