Ok, ok, i know this has been talked over and over again but i couldn't find a relevant response.
So what happened: i run a sports website that features a pretty neat community (circa 200k posts). The board is lightly moderated and 90% of the cases we talk about our team but sometimes the talk goes either a little bit too hard or a bit off topic. I do however have a filter that censors any curse words that i set but two days ago i received the notification from google that ad serving to my website has been disabled (the account is still active and the ads still run on my other websites) due to a topic where images of sexy women (no nudity however) were posted. I immediately deleted the thread but i'm a bit afraid to reapply for verification because i'm pretty sure if they scrap the forum they can find other similar posts.
So what i did today was installing a few plugins that removed any images (either used in posts with the IMG tag or as attachements), all the signatures and all the external links, not only for guests but also for the newly registered users that haven't reached the required number of posts to gain full access.
Basically anyone who goes to the forum now and is not an approved member cannot see any images or links, while the curse words have always been censored.
Question is, are these measures enough to have my ads re-enabled or i should just forget about it and find other advertisers? :(
