"...significant risk to our advertisers."

Yep, that's what G.o.o.gle Ad.sen.se seems to think my account is. I got an email from them about a month ago stating that my account, my little blog, has posed a significant risk to their advertisers.

Translate - they believe that I have a band of merry men out there erroneously clicking away, in the hopes of making me somewhere around $.01 a click.

Hmmm, I must also be offering them each a 30% kickback because, really, why would anyone just sit there all day and click for me? Who has time for that?

While I really didn't care about having the ads restored, I do not like being accused of something of which I am not guilty, so, I appealed, basically, on the grounds of ludicrousness. Today I got an email stating that they have "reconfirmed" this, apparently, significant risk.

So, they've shut me down for good. Whatever. Good riddance. Now I can stop seeing ads for friggin' balloons from a post in mid-May!

LOL, I got the same thing a month ago. You know I wonder, has anyone gotten a check from google?? I think they boot everyone once they reach the $100 check cutting amount...

Ha! I'm lucky to get a click a day. You must have some dedicated clickers to get you shut down. That's awesome! ;)

I got the same thing. My account was disabled. Hmmm, right before I would have received a check.

So stupid. Maybe they just decide that because no one buys balloons after they click, they're not going to make money on you...!
