Is Google doing the right thing?

Looking at all the comments in the various blogs, such as in Andy Beard's, I find myself really in great company. My PR has also gone down from 3 to 2 and then to 0 because I'm a PayPerPost blogger. But I don't sell Text Link Ads.

The thing is Google is victimising a small segment of bloggers leaving the vast majority unscathed. I'm sure Google hardly touched a small portion of all the 85,000 PayPerPost bloggers.

Anyway, I think Google cannot penalise bloggers by taking away or reducing the PR because it will be making a great mockery of PR which is supposed to measure the importance of the page. Just because there is a paid opinion in the form of a sponsored post and link does not make the blog less important or relevant than if there is a not-sought-after opinion given.
