The blog's owner, Åsk Wäppling, recently got a notice from Google that read:
"As stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers are not permitted to place Google ads on pages with adult or mature content. In addition to photos and videos which contain nudity or sexual activities, below are some other examples of unacceptable content: * Lewd or provocative images * Crude or indecent language, including adult stories * Sexual tips or advice * Sexual fetish sites (e.g. foot fetish content) * Adult toys or products * Ads or links to external sites containing adult content * Adult links and/or adult keywords within the meta data in the source code of your site"The offending content? This image, from a four-year-old post in the archives.
Åsk points out that Adsense regularly serves up much more sexually-charged content than this, like Evony's notorious titty ads.
What is going on here? Adland was kicked off Adsense almost a year ago for a seven-year-old post showing an ad with bare bums and complaining about its sexism.
Incredible that lingerie photos, of a type that can be found in any department store catalogue, have been labelled "mature content". Someone needs to get their head out of their ass.
