    $5000 a month is a shit load of traffic. I think I was making around $500 from 70,000 page views to put that in perspective.

    From what I had gleaned before this surfaced today, it was a lot of Greyhat / Blackhat people affected. They could sweep that under the rug as TOS violations easily. Anyone Whitehat with that much traffic would be a large "green label" publisher anyway.

    Have you seen the news on google adsense..a law suit with class action was filed yesterday. Not sure it will get through but does point to google taking people's money.

    I hope this one simmers for a while and something big comes of it. Everyone I know has gone "yeah, right" but I have read a lot of blackhat/greyhat forums for a while now and they all said it well before this story came to light

    Very disappointed, but not very surprised actually.

    Bad signs for one of the biggest companies in the world, must have bankers at top...What would be the best alternative, or if only small, should I stay with adsense??? I have heard though it can help with rankings with google
