Has Joel Comm gone over to the dark side

A long time ago in an email far far away, Joel comm released his instant adsense template product. (notice the lack of an aff link)
Has he gone over to the dark side with this.?
Joel comm has done very well for himself and is a very knowledgeable resource if you're looking at going beyond what google has to say about monetizing a website or blog using adsense.
But his latest venture I have to question.
I know he knows as do the other copy cats and hucksters that publishing duplicate content will just get you delisted or banned or what ever the great gods that be at google deem fitting.
Quoted from an email
"Making money with AdSense is done by creating content-rich sites that people actually want to visit, and NOT by tossing up page upon page of PLR content that everyone and their dog also has on a web site. That is a recipe for DISASTER! That's why the PLR content included with the next set of Instant AdSense Templates will be minimal. It will exist ONLY as a placeholder for you to see where your own original content will go."

Now I may be off on this so correct me if you think I am. But it looks to me like joel is flogging the use of duplicate content but is making a disclaimer not to, to cover his butt.
Im pretty he knows as well as you or I that those that buy this package more than likely dont write their own content, dont have the time to write their own content, not maintain 5-10 page mini site.
There a PLR craze going on right now, has been for a while to be honest. And loads of people are jumping on this bandwagon. To make a fast buck by fleecing visitors whilke providing nothing other than a mish mash of adsense block.
Yes the arguments are many and varied for and against this kind of business practice.
Sorry people I just dont see it as running a business, developing a relationship. Solving a problem or providing a high quality product that someone will find useful.
Why wuld you want to run a site like this. Leaving that footprint all over the net in plain view of the SE's only to have them delist you or bann your adsense account altogethor.
Some of the other instant adsense template products are being promotes as a cloaked site, Cody Moyas product anyways, one the SE's sees and one the visitor sees. Now I havent read the Adsense TOS but I'm pretty sure this is a no no.
Heres a great and muchmore eloquently written article about what I am talking about.

Duplicated content is a big problem specially for people that builded a adsense empire from free articles. I really recommend anybody to use ghost writers to get customized articles and there are some other services that will change the content keeping the topic of the article the same, just go to google to look for this services...

Good luck,
