"In my case, I was running ads for an affiliate site before it was known that Google didnít like that stuff."
Care to clarify?
Affiliates can run ads, but G does have rules that must be followed, none of which are "no affiliates". Truth is, many affiliate sites are junk, G bans junk - so it seems like they ban affiliates. But that's not the case.
This said, the ownership thing is a fair criticism of G - once you no longer own a domain (and G is a registrar, they know), you shouldn't be responsible for anything new that starts happening on that domain from then on.
