...without actually knowing what the violation was.
Everybody thinks their baby is beautiful, I'm guilty of this too. However Google's AdSense content policies are pretty clear. Maybe you're too close to the content and need someone not associated with the site to tell you how ugly a part of your baby really is. Or maybe you need a simple reality check. No shame in that, everyone needs one from time to time. So, for example, something like someone talking about torrent downloads will likely violate Google's prohibitions against copyright violations as well as for encouraging illegal activities. Here are the prohibitions [support.google.com].
Content that advocates against an individual, group, or organization
Drug, alcohol, and tobacco-related content
Hacking and cracking content
Sites that offer compensation programs ("pay-to" sites)
Sites that use Google Brand features
Other illegal content
Publishers are not permitted to place ads on content related to the production of false legal documents, such as fake IDs, passports, social security cards, or immigration papers. In addition, ads may not appear on sites dedicated to the sale or distribution of term papers or other materials that promote fraudulent activity. Sites that drive traffic to or provide instructions about manufacturing counterfeit or replica designer goods are also not permitted in the AdSense program.
Google ads may not be placed on any site that promotes or permits any form of criminal activity.
