All By Myself

You may have noticed that the Google Ads on the side of this page have been taken down. The reason for this development apparently is that I was making too much money from readers clicking the ads. It appears that Google is happy to advertise on your page so long as no one actually, you know, looks at those ads. This from the email they sent me in regards to pulling their ads from my page:

While going through our records recently, we found that your AdSense
account has posed a significant risk to our AdWords advertisers. Since
keeping your account in our publisher network may financially damage our
advertisers in the future, we've decided to disable your account.

Please understand that we consider this a necessary step to protect the
interests of both our advertisers and our other AdSense publishers. We
realize the inconvenience this may cause you, and we thank you in advance
for your understanding and cooperation.

They also informed me that they will not be paying me the money I had already earned (over $70 to this point). So thanks to all the readers for your support and thanks to Google for sucking.


  1. That sounds really bitchy doesn't it?

    I'm really sorry about that. They shoud at least pay up what they owe you. Sue them and own Google!
