I have a suggestion to make:
- assuming Google are so keen in "protecting" advertisers as repeatedly stated by them (ad nauseum)
- assuming honest publishers are also keen in "protecting" advertisers, and fully complying with TOS, as repeatedly stated by them (ad nauseum)
I propose that there be a procedure (service) whereby the AdSense publisher invites Google to inspect (preemptively) his site(s) and comment on whether said site(s) are in full compliance with AdSense TOS, or otherwise point out elements that are in violation of TOS, and need modification.
By initiating this procedure and complying to possible Google suggestions regarding site modifications, publisher proves his intent for full compliance with TOS, applies any modifications, and explicitly receives a "seal of approval". A record of what is approved may be kept, and a small fee may be applied by Google for this service, charged against future AdSense income.
Why perpetuate the ambivalence? Resolve it in a properly defined manner!
Except if the ambivalence serves some other purpose, and needs to kept alive . . . .
