So, after three years of being banned from Google AdSense for signing up underage and clicking ads, I am still banned by my social security number to ever be able to use AdSense again. See, I understand that I clicked my own ads and that it was probably the only reason for me getting banned. But I admitted to it, and I admitted that my estimated 10 or so clicks did not come out to equal the $130-some payout that they owed me, and then took away. I specifically told them they were allowed to keep the money in question, all I wanted was the ability to run Adsense and monetize off of my websites that burn through money in Domain name costs and Hosting fees. They “returned it to the advertisers”. I’m sure they did that – scoff -.
Okay, I’m being a bitch. But let me tell you why this pisses me off personally. I understand that they must make their ad service fair for everybody, and eliminate fraudulent ad clicks and fraudulent interests, but me clicking a couple times should not get me removed from their service for life. After three years and a heart-felt apology to Google, they still sent me the same message.

Not only will I NEVER AGAIN do such a stupid mistake on any ad service, I will also use ANY OTHER SERVICE other than Google for anything (that I can afford to do so). Think about this, Google is a monopoly of the internet. They own Youtube and have absolutely ruined the entire platform, among other bought-out services that they own and make bank off of using adsense to monetize in any way possible
, or maybe read the Debate.org 97%-yes 3%-no vote on how Google has completely ruined YouTube. Google Chrome sucks the asshole of an irate IBS-afflicted basement-dweller.
But, before I’m done typing let me ask you one question: How many times has your minute-long advertisement that Google forces you to watch load with no delay, only to end to a video that doesn’t load.
WHEN THE ADVERTISEMENTS AND MONEY COME BEFORE THE CONTENT THAT PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO STICK THROUGH TO VIEW THE CONTENT, THERE SHOULD BE ANOTHER SERVICE THAT COMES ALONG AND PICKS UP FROM WHERE THEY FAILED TO LEAVE OFF.
Someone start a new Google, but don’t be a greedy fucking bastard.
