Archie, this is nothing new at all, and please do NOT feel "guilty" for wanting to setup 40,000 keywords. If Overture management had half a brain they would make it easier to help customer port their keywords over. I myself built up my adwords campaign to tens of thousands of keywords as well, before deciding to start working on my overture account (because I knew how ridiculous their policies are). I'm buying the same PPC $ volume as you are in adwords, and dealing with overture's nonsense is taking 80% of my workday. Maybe when I get bumped from Gold to Platinum, they will actually give a damn, but I don't feel like wasting 3 months waiting for a review.
I submitted a few thousand listings to see how Overture would handle it. They changed my:
3. display url (yes, display url....)
4. and dissapproved only my highest traffic/best converting keywords because of "insufficient content"
AND ofcourse I was never informed of any of the first 3 changes.
