The medical term is ****?

The capitalized **** is clearly a proper noun but does that disclude it from also and at the same time not being a euphemism for a *****.

It was supposed to be a reply to Belkira, but Joph messed it up.

Well, also @#%^ Zam for using Adsense when their websites are hinged on an active community and user participation. Use a different ad service.

Seriously, some of these restrictions are ridiculous:
https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/1348688?hl=en
Quote:
Sexual tips and health

Google ads may not be placed on content that provides tips regarding sexual performance or discusses some treatments of sexual health issues. Examples include, but are not limited to:

• advice about improving sexual performance
• discussions and/or images of sexually transmitted diseases
• sexual health advice related to pregnancy, childbirth, or family planning


Quote:
Sexually gratifying content

• images of men or women posing and/or undressing in a seductive manner


Quote:
Violent content

What's the policy?

Our program policies don't allow Google ads to be placed on content that contains graphic or gory images such as bloodshed, fight scenes, and gruesome or freak accidents. Publishers are responsible for every page on which their ad code appears and for screening any text, images, videos, or other media which will appear on a page with Google ads.

Examples Not acceptable
• Breaking bones
• Getting hit by trains/cars
• Receiving other serious injuries
• Sites with gory videos or images

Some of that is even more restrictive than G-rated. Even Disney movies have a "man or woman posing in a seductive manner."

And apparently discussing contraception or HIV is right-out! Wouldn't want kids to read something about HIV like how I learned about it in school at age eight, 23 years ago.


Three questions:

1. Has Google lost their ******* minds? lolAmerica.
2. Why is a gaming website using an ad service with those kinds of restrictions?
3. Is Kate Beckinsale posing in a seductive manner in my avatar?

But seriously, has Google lost their ******* minds?

Quote:

• images of men or women posing and/or undressing in a seductive manner


This one is impossible to police, unless they want to elaborate on what "seductive" is.

Edit: Holy quote wall, and I fail at reading. Smiley: facepalm

I am fairly certain that being a **** is a medical condition. As such, it is protected under, ACA, UDAAP, NWNBA ( and PWIQ condition ).

Therefore, even non-capitalized **** must be seen as anything but *****.

It is also ,probably, sexist. Naturally, being a **** myself, i am mildly biased.

Then again, I base this entire post on absolutely nothing.

It's also so totally broken that many websites won't work with it. We put a nice disclaimer in giant red letters on my work website that screams "Does not play nice with IE11!!1!" 95% of it works, but there's some underlying table/grid controls that were built for IE7 that we're gonna rip out and replace later this year because IE11 doesn't acknowledge they exist.

I think we should make a policy of just posting as we wish, and if it get nuked just post it again with letters moved.

Or the Reddit thing.

Yes. It was hyperbole. No one can predict anything about now + 20 years. On balance, though, I don't think it's wildly dissimilar from noticing declining network TV ad revenue in 1985 and concluding that traditional TV networks were going away.


Which is not the same as saying the current online advertising platform will be the same primary ad platform. There will absolutely be online ads. Will Google stay at the apex? I'd wager they will remain competitive, but diminish as other firms aggressively compete. Ad firms aren't incredibly stable.

But hey, BBDO's been around for a while.

I was going to leave it until Google yells at us about it. I don't think that particular word made it into the proposed word list anyways. I did remove anything I thought I could get away with, including various gender / sexual terms of description in use in general conversation and headlines of major news entities. We'll see.

I would have preferred that we instead pull all ads from all forum content and stick the forum in it's own separate namespace, but that is not happening. There is definitly an argument for that approach though. no ads, and the forum population would grow, which in turn translates to more people using the ad saturated main site sections. No one wants to test that theory though.
Using project wonderful ads or something could always be an option too, instead of just not having ads.

With what leverage? Mature (from a business model standpoint) sites can book their own ad sales, and likely will, the never ending stream of newly created 'viral' content sites needs some stable solution to monetize. For someone to break that hold on the market, they need to break Google's monopoly on search. Again, 20 years is a long time, no one can really say, but good luck breaking Google's search market share.
