Auto-Censor for adSense Bot

Would censoring words be ok?

I, as many others, had problems with PSAs on health related sites that contain words that the Mediapartners bot appearantly finds objectionable.

I think we can all agree that this is to avoid associating AdSense with disreputable sites.

The question is, Do you think it would be ok to cloak such pages to the Mediapartners bot and simple censor out objectionable words, so for example you get: ***ual health as far as mediapartners is concerned. It won't pick up the words for targeting and will target hte ads to the rest of the page witch is perfectly appropriate.

Does this seem reosonable?
(And I'm not looking for a to the letter interpretation of the TOS, Google has proven quite flexible in the past regardign this).

I'm sure that would probably be frowned upon by Google but they are the ones to answer that definitively.

What I don't understand is why this would happen if the site has been approved. Sure I understand that some people may try to cheat and the software has no idea what's going on so it takes the side of caution, but, there must be someway to override this for approved sites since Google checks them ever so often anyway.

Conceptually this makes sense. But if it has been implemented I haven't seen it in action and my inquiries have resulted in form letters that have little to do with the questions I pose.

And the site I'm having problems with has had high 6-figure AdSense impressions so I'd think any mechanism would have been triggered by now.
