Problem is.... there is this middleman monopoly guy I have to work through.
Its not as simple as "you agreed to it" when you are effectively coerced due to no other real options in a market dominated by a monopoly.
The AdSense to publisher relationship is an anomaly, almost completely without precedence and defying traditional business definition. That's exactly what Google intended when it created it and that's precisely what all of us signed up to be a part of.
