    Will you be trying to stop people on the internet fringe making money?

    Would you try to stop someone or try to lessen their profit  if they were doing something to get ahead on the internet but were not exactly following Google terms of service? i.e. they weren't doing something illegal but simply doing things that Google does not approve of. What if this person was trying to pay hospital bills and the only way they knew how to make money was to do something on the fringe?

    I wouldn't g out of my way to notify google of someone.  Google pay people to carry out such audits on their systems to make sure that no one fiddles it, so why would I be snatching some poor persons last piece of bread when Google can do the jb themselves.

    Very intriguing question.  I am an internet marketer and have been for many
    years. I can tell you in the internet marketing circles I'm in, we go out of our
    way to work within the rules of Google or any other entity we utilize to market
    our products or services.  We have learned that using black hat methods
    might give you an immediate surge in traffic and/or sales, but these methods
    will also give you a black eye in terms of being known as a spammer, and
    a fly by night sort of marketer.

    People who are making their living on the internet don't wish to risk this.
    There are plenty of ways to make money on the internet without resorting
    to questionable tactics.  You also have to remember that for many people
    selling anything period to make a profit, is questionable.

    Many people don't want to think that you are profiting by selling a product. 
    For those people, they will have a problem with you trying to make an
    income on the internet.  These are not people who are going to be your customers, obviously.

    It intrigues me that people can go to a job, and expect to get paid for what
    they do, and would not like it at all if the employer thought they should do
    their job for free, but at the same time many of those same people don't
    think you should get paid for what you do on the internet.

    My feeling is that for the person who is selling products and services
    on the internet, which is giving them the ability to take care of themselves
    and their family, is one less person standing in the unemployment line and
    less people who are living on public assistance.  I think these people should
    be celebrated for their initiative and desire to be self sufficient, not vilified
    and made to look suspect,  however that is what is going on today in America.

    We are supposed to feel sorry for people, not try to lift them up and
    encourage them to do for themselves and celebrate those who are
    doing well.
