State of the Freakwenter: Revenue Report

Since installing ads nearly a year ago, the Freakwenter's revenue account has accumulated $53.85. Based on calculations like those described in this previous post, the Freakwenter estimates that current earnings are something like 20 standard deviations above the mean (among blogs with similar traffic levels). It now appears likely that the revenue will someday cross the $100 mark, at which point Google is obligated to make the first payment, and at that time the Freakwenter may mail out dividents to Freakwent contributers. That is, IF Google pays up. Indeed, the Freakwenter will make no effort to prosecute if Google fails to pay, because the Freakwenter is aware that much of its revenue comes from the devious activities of rebellious readers, who regularly ignore the Freakwenter's repeated pleas to lead upstanding lives. Google most likely has algorithms to disqualify revenue that lies above several standard deviations over the mean. But if it happens that Google does not have such algorithms, and the Freakwenter receives this corrupt money, what should be done with it?
