That much human review just wouldn't be possible. All of this is pretty ridiculous
Rubbish. They already manually review your first site already. And they have the tools to check for copied content etc. So it wouldn't take much to manually check your next site.
And don't forget presently, you write your first site to a good standard, then you can create lots of crappy, low content, copied content, hotlinked garbage for your next site.
With them checking every site will put a stop to a lot of this. Plus, having to wait 1 year will also make it easier for Google.
I see a lot of sites close after the 1st year (with and without adsense). By waiting a year, a lot of those sites that closed down would not have applied for adsense. Therefore saving Google time.
and customer service is actually great.
This is business here.
And Google is a business too. By allowing any tyke onboard lowers the quality and trust of the company.
