There are many sites suffering by the Google Farmer / Panda update and you'd think Google wouldn't want to pour salt on an open wound but some are experiencing just that.
A WebmasterWorld thread has some publishers complaining that the Google AdSense team is emailing publishers that their AdSense income is down. They are trying to find out what Google can do to help the publisher bring up their AdSense income to the levels before this update.
The thing is, the AdSense team doesn't realize that Google is the reason that these publishers have drastically lower AdSense income.
Google hit a ton of sites with this update and if they do not rank well, they do not make money for the publishers or Google.
Some feel these AdSense emails are insulting and downright hurtful.
