Personally I'm tired of dancing with Google. It seems like a lost cause as you could spend months/years building up a site only to be destroyed by Google with little or no warning... or logic for that matter.
I'm thinking about setting up a site that blocks Google from indexing my site and force myself to see how well I can do by burning bridges with Google.
Would such a site be interesting to anyone out there? If I have success, I'll blog articles, etc.
