No Charities in Yahoo Network?

Recently, I signed up for the Yahoo beta publishing network. However, I noticed that they did not accept religious or charity web sites! I almost fell off my chair. How could this be so? It seems that they'd be losing a giant chunk of revenue AND alienating a sector of the public that is doing (the most?) good.

Your thoughts?

What type of charity/religious site are you talking about. What do you advertise for on a charity/religious site, possibly no advertisers in overture?

Sounds like a hard topic to peg, and many companies might want to avoid sensitive topics, especially those who do RON ads, like Vonage.

I ran into this problem with Google. The reason behind it is they don't want members just clicking on Ads just to raise money for the charity and therefore raising advertisers costs without raising advertisers traffic.

It is still in beta, so they may be loosening up some of the requirements when it leaves beta.
