This is a bit too harsh from google. Now, am I not allowed to keep one link unit below my breadcrumb trail? Actually there is a title of the article between breadcrumb trail and link unit. Any thoughts?
Adsense can't be used in popups, you should report them.
He didn't say the adsense was *IN* the popup, but rather the popup hovered near the ad on the page, and to kill the popup by clicking the X you run a high risk of clicking the ad on the actual page by accident.
