Google Adsense - Reading the Fineprint...

Russell Beattie takes a long hard look at the Terms And Conditions of the Google Adsense Program:
"(...) Finally - and this is the part that bugs me the most - the numbers have been changing constantly. You may go to your site and get a list of click throughs and the money you've earned, and the next day, the amount of money has dropped for no reason, and then when you receive your check, the amount doesn't correspond to *anything*. Google doesn't give you a log of clicks, advertisers and fees with the check. There's no transparency at all.

Google gets to decide what they pay you for and how much, *and* they can change these rates at any time. (...)"
Strange - wasn't Google supposed to be one of the good guys ?
