Got this email from AdSense the other day. Sure Google, I'll add Gambling ads...I'm sure you won't penalize me for doing so in about 30 days.

Are you sure it was from AdSense? I know Google has moved away from its olden day stance on integrity, but I wouldn't have thought quite that far.

Seems odd they would send that.

I got that email too.

The setting is in Allow/Block > Sensitive > Scroll all the way down, it's in a separate section way at the bottom of the page.

Just so you know. If you show gambling ads that may go against your consciousness. What goes around comes around. Think for a moment. Would you like your father, brother, sister, mother or daughter to gamble? If no, how would you sleep well at night prompting others into this addiction? I have removed number of ad categories and my earnings are actually stronger.

In some countries advertising gambling may be illegal, just like alcohol ads are in some.

I presume (and hope) the answer is yes, but thought I would ask anyway. Does Google stop such ads from appearing in countries where they are against the law?
