I keep trying to clarify this...I'm the original OP but it's not my adsens account that's been shut down. It's a family member. Just for clarification she has only used one ppc campaigns ever and that was adwords. Her website also has an average of 40% of visitors marking the site as a favorite which I would think would be very unusual for MFA sites. If the site was garbage why would that many people mark it to visit again? (which the do). I hate garbage MFA sites as much as anybody and keep my ad filter completely full. This site is not like those, that's all I can say. And yes, I always rolled my eyes too at the "just banned" postings. I really can't figure this one out.
