No Offence, But…

It’s funny that I had always assumed the Chinese government would be the first to censor my site, but that pin gets given to Google of all things. It figures I chose to apply for Google’s AdSense program the day I post an entry that says “sexist” and “racist” in the first bit. I wonder how one becomes a “program specialist”… I wonder if they’re more than 14 years old? Or more than a semi-developed word-finding application for that matter.

Hello Ryan,

Thank you for your interest in Google AdSense. After reviewing your application, our program specialists have found that it does not comply with our policies. Therefore, we’re unable to accept you into Google AdSense at this time.

– Sensitive content
Further detail:

Sensitive content: Google believes strongly in freedom of expression and offers broad access to content across the web without censoring search results. At the same time, we reserve the right to exercise discretion when reviewing sites for AdSense. We’ve found that your website contains content that we don’t allow at this time. AdSense policy doesn’t currently accept sites that advocate against any individual, group, or organization. Please review our policies for a complete list of site content not allowed on web pages.

I get to go to the beach tomorrow.. yay. Oh, and seeing as I am not able to put ads on my site and bug you all to click on them… I am going to add a PayPal donation button. It’s not that this site costs me a load of money (maybe $80/yr.) but hey… donations would certainly help out this poor traveller. So, if you’ve got a bank account that is in the black and you like my site… throw me a couple bucks.
