Google Busting Bad Advertising Practices — 2013 in Review swa66 msg:4638390 11:00 pm on Jan 18, 2014 (gmt 0) System: The following 4 messages were cut out of thread at: http://www.webmasterworld.com/google_adsense/4638280.htm [ webmasterworld.com] by martinibuster - 6:13 am on Jan 19, 2014 (utc -8) And I wonder how many cheating advertisers they kicked out ... E.g. the kind that mis-categorizes their ads in order to bypass our filters, or the kind that promotes human trafficing, etc. Come on, how many ? none ?

Swa66, here's the Google "bad advertisers" report: [ ...] adwords.blogspot.com swa66 msg:4638438 1:02 pm on Jan 19, 2014 (gmt 0)
Thanks for that link, kind of confirms what I was afraid: they do nothing against advertisers that cheat the publishers - or at lest don't report on it. Pity. netmeg msg:4638445 1:57 pm on Jan 19, 2014 (gmt 0)
Not sure how you came to that conclusion from reading that link. They tossed out over 200k advertisers for scamming, they gave one example - counterfeit goods - but that doesn't preclude other reasons. Which is not to say that they don't care more about cheating users than cheating publishers, but saying they do nothing is probably an overreach.
