Appeal Rejected

Well, I have appealed the cancellation of my google Ads account. That appeal has been rejected.

"Thanks for providing us with additional information. However, after
thoroughly reviewing your account data and taking your feedback into
consideration, we've re-confirmed that your account poses a significant
risk to our advertisers. For this reason, we're unable to reinstate your
account. Thank you for your understanding."

(Direct quote from the rejection e-mail)

My understanding? MY UNDERSTANDING?!

Please, if you can, understand a few things:

1) How, exactly, does donating the profits from clicks on Adsense ads pose a "significant risk to our advertisers"?

2) Just how "thoroughly" was my account data reviewed?

3) If you think MY feedback was bad, just wait until I tell everyone I know about this.

4) I can't make money off my own Adsense ads. When you start a google Ad account, the account records your URL address. And clicks from your own URL do not produce revenue. So if you thought the "risk" was from me clicking my own ads over and over, guess again!

I strongly encourage you, the 3 readers of this blog, to tell everyone you know just how full of crap Google is. And to NEVER use Google again. I certainly won't. From now on, if I need to do a search, I'm using Yahoo. Oh, and if you have Google ads on your own website (if you have one), I encourage you to take them off immediately. Significant risk? Let's SHOW them what a significant risk REALLY looks like!
