Then there was a leaked Google quality rater document that came out lately specifically stating you will be given a low quality score just for having in-text ads on your site.

As more webmasters become aware of the potential for a permanent low quality Google SERP rating I think we'll see in-text die off almost completely.
The doc can be found in various places around the web - I don't think we want to link to it here.
I still use Vibrant with Adsense but the returns from Vibrant are decreasing rapidly. The company is in complete disarray from what I read, exec and staff turnover is huge.
Here are some examples of pages with poor page design, organization, layout, or use of space, which should be rated Low:
• Many Ads or highly distracting Ads on the visible part of the page when it first loads in the browser (before you do any scrolling), making it difficult to read the MC.
• Repeated insertion of Ads between sections of the MC, so that the page jolts the user back and forth between MC and Ads in a way that makes the MC difficult to read.
• Invasive Ads, such as popups that cannot be closed.
• A large quantity of Ads with a relatively small amount of helpful MC.
• (here it is->)Text ads, placed beside or within the site's navigation links, which may confuse users.
Low or lowest quality MC
￼Poor page design
￼This content has many problems: poor spelling and grammar, complete lack of editing, inaccurate information. The poor quality of the MC is a reason for the Lowest+ to Low rating.
In addition, the popover ads (the words that are double underlined in blue) can make the main content difficult to read, resulting in a poor user experience.
This article is so poorly written that it is difficult to understand. There is no evidence of expertise or even accuracy. In addition, a large amount of SC and popover Ads interrupt the MC.
