As a long time, problem free Adsense publisher who was just banned overnight without prior warning I am quite amazed at the heavy handedness of it all. In my case I believe the issue is related to a new ad I recently installed at the recommendation of the Adsense Team. The ad enjoyed instant success and I was impressed at how astute the Adsense Team must be in helping me increase my earnings.
Wrongo! Now they have discontinued my account and have kept thousands of dollars of my earnings. Because of the location of the ad I believe I know what the problem is and have removed the new ad but who knows if I will be reinstated or if they will more of the earnings than they should.
A few more alternatives for us small publishers would be welcome.
