Haven't been banned by Adwords yet but am sure that it's coming at some point. Like most I'm insanely cheesed off by their arrogance and their disregard for essentially biting the hand that feeds them.

As marketers we're good and persuading and convincing. So, if Google wants to take us on, let's fight back! I'm telling everyone that I speak to about an amazing search engine called Bing which they may not of heard of but is far better than Google. Take away their traffic and Google are stuffed.
Also hit them by removing Adsense from your sites and finding some alternatives.
Warriors, let's take on the giant and move their traffic to a search engine that's more affiliate friendly.
