One of our primary ad networks is Google Adsense and this is the policy violation notification that we received on July 6, 2019.

In the last 24 hours:

New violations were detected. As a result, ad serving has been restricted or disabled on pages where these violations of the AdSense Program Policies were found. To resolve the issues, you can either remove the violating content and request a review, or remove the ad code from the violating pages.


When I checked the link to the offending page, I got a message that "No violations were found".

Once we were warned about "sexual content"  on a page that had a photo of Serena Williams in her cat suit.

Thus our reference to "cultural conflict".

It has been suggested that the algorithms of the AI bots are biased, resulting in an inconsistency in interpretation.

We need to develop an alternative source of revenue.

The conflict between warnings and notifications that "no violations were found" can be very frustrating. :shrug:

My website urbanbellemag.com received a similar message a week ago. Their excuse was 'Invalid traffic." It really seems Google is trying to remove black sites from AdSense.

Should we boycott white businesses that use Adsense?

If it walks like duck and quacks like a duck then it's a duck. Having to tread on egg shells in cyberspace due to the risk of offending a "majority population" ....too bad that's not a two-way street.

Just got another notification about "objectionable content" from a post two years ago resulting in "reduced ad serving"

The bots strike again.

If this is being run on Wordpress, download a firewall plugin. I did that a few weeks ago and Google Adsense let my website back in and there wasn't an interruption in the receiving of our payments.

We're not using Wordpress and have addressed the "violations" individually.  With several thousand posts in the last 11 years, there is no way we could moderate every post, especially when the bots find "violations" from several years ago.

Meanwhile we do the best we can and hope there is not significant drop in revenue.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
