Error Blocking Site in Adsense

I'm trying to block a site in Adsense but i receive the following error message:

"Unknown error occurred when trying to apply decision to URL:"

Is anyone else seeing this error?

I get it regardless if I'm trying to block a URL for a single site or all sites.

I did google your error to see if others had a similar problem. You only posted this message just over an hour ago. Yet according to google, they knew about it 16 hours ago!
[google.com...]

Looks like Google now knows what you are going to write in the future. Spooky.


Try running crap cleaner through your PC. See if that fixes things.

LOL. Google knew about my error 17 hours before I even created the webmasterworld post LOL.

Must be Google's new Unicorn Algorithm Update that predicts the future.

I found out the issue:

Some ads show a display URL that isn't the actual ad URL, so if you try to block the URL of an Ad that isn't actively advertising on Adwords you will get this message. "well at-least that's what I'm assuming, i could be 100% wrong!"

Some ad url's I can block, some show this message.

Send it to support.

They still need to work on that blocking stuff. I get a lot of ads for local events (sporting events, etc) and right at the moment I'm seeing ads for basketball games that were played three weeks ago. They don't show up in my display ad center thingy, so the only way to block them is to block ALL their ads.

I hate lazy advertisers.

Are the domain names all lower case?

I had one like that and it kept getting the error message when I tried to block it. Changing to all lower case fixed the issue.
