I've had casino personel stare at my game.

Has anyone been kicked out for counting?

Sort of. Been backed off from blackjack probably 12-14 times. That is told you can play any other game except blackjack. Been backed off a second non-card game 3 times. Had one incident that I was told to get out of the casino and not come back, but was not formally trespassed.
Just say no to 6:5 Blackjack, Continuous shuffle machines and Blackjack the Forum. All are Negative expected value.

Some are paid to do just that.

I want to hear this story. Were you destroying the craps table with your mad dice setting ways?

Personally, I have never been kicked out of a casino. In fact, casinos keep calling me and asking when I would like to come back. I wonder if it has to do with my cheerful personality or the fact that I donate lots of money to them.

Ok. I'm a new counter. I figure even the best counter will lose 5*% of the time. So they'd have to analyze a lot of playing hours before they kick you?

If they are really on the ball, they will most likely back you off first. They want your money, so if you are willing to play as a consistent loser in their establishment, they will welcome you with open arms like all the other suckers playing slots. If you don't take the hint, they will bar you. As you can imagine, the cat and mouse game with security isn't much fun for the player and makes card counters critically endangered species.

I've been backed off from blackjack at one place, and flat-bet at another (i.e. "You can still play blackjack, just don't vary your bets"). At both of these places my max bet was about $150. The term "sweat shop" comes to mind.

If you count for any amount of time, it will happen eventually (I've only been counting since September 2011, and recreationally). Just try to spread your action around enough that you last as long as you can. There's a balancing point that is different for everyone based on your level of play, quality of act, cover (which is highly not recommended for low or mid stakes players) etc.
