...and there was much rejoicing: (yeeaaahh!)

Yes, we've all snarled in irritation when a search link led us to a page full of nothing but ads, or worse yet some bogus "search engine" that will pick up any term queried for and mirror the text on the page. Google has traditionally black-listed sites like these, but this is a more assertive step.
