I’ve offended the Google

What have I done.  Can anyone tell me how I have offended the Google Gods?  I’ve been rejected.

Hello,

Thank you for your appeal. We appreciate the additional information you've

Google AdSence Censorship

My AdSense account was disabled a few days ago.  This is very frustrating but I think I know what happened.

As a part of the MySQL community, I run MySQL Fan Boy and write tech stories each week. Last week the community talked about how to keep track of the community and the web sites we all use and podcasts we lesson to.

I made the mistake of posting “my list” of links I read each week without much other content. OPPS  I think the Google (an automated mindless machine doing no eval – wink  wink) saw this as link bate.  My Account was Disabled and my Money was gone.  (If Google disables your account the also return an earnings you have accumulated.) Now I’m left to file an appeal and pray.  (I’m told “Good Luck”.)

As it turned out, My list of links got me a shout out on a podcast ( OurSql ) and sent lots of traffic to my site just as I got banned.

In a world powered by Google, do I dare post Web Links. Must I write N number of words with each link?

Thanks for keeping us all safe Google.

Here is what I received:

Hello,
After reviewing our records, we've determined that your AdSense account 
poses a risk of generating invalid activity. Because we have a
responsibility to protect our AdWords advertisers from inflated costs due
to invalid activity, we've found it necessary to disable your AdSense
account. Your outstanding balance and Google's share of the revenue will
both be fully refunded back to the affected advertisers.

Please understand that we need to take such steps to maintain the
effectiveness of Google's advertising system, particularly the
advertiser-publisher relationship. We understand the inconvenience that
this may cause you, and we thank you in advance for your understanding and
cooperation.

If you have any questions or concerns about the actions we've taken, how
you can appeal this decision, or invalid activity in general, you can find
more information by visiting

Why we HATE! insurance companies and financial institutions

Every year you are ask to renew your insurance.  Every year there is an insane level of frustrating hoops to jump through.  These companies know you will go through most any length to get this work done so why should they put out any efferent to make their stuff work right.

This companie’s website not only doesn’t work with most browsers, they put up stuff like this:

Do you see a “Getting Started” BLUE BUTTON on the right?
