How does Policy Violation Reporting work?

I received a "3 day warning" to make changes to my site due to adult content for the first time about 2 weeks ago. The post in question was an image that is not adult at all, which led me to believe that a robot sent this notification after a visitor reported the violation. Had a real Google employee seen the photo, he would never have sent me this warning. 

Does a real Google employee review/verify the violation after it was reported or a robot automatically send the warning regardless if the violation is legit or not?

Dunno. Don't know that anyone knows. Ask support.

Look at that Google just launched a new notification feature that's being rolled out this week. Received an email titled: "Stay on top of AdSense program policies with new notifications in your account."

Our AdSense program policies are defined to ensure we all preserve a healthy ecosystem for users, advertisers and other publishers, and compliance with these policies is an absolute must for every publisher. We’ve heard your requests for more accessible information on policy issues and we’re happy to tell you that we are launching an additional policy notifications feature directly in your AdSense account. This will help you to quickly understand and address any potential policy issues.

Going forward, if our system detects a policy violation, you’ll receive both an email and an account notification with a link to view more details. Under the Policy violations section on the home tab, you can quickly access important information including details on each violation, the issue ID and an example of the violation on your site. The page will also include details on the action you need to take to resolve the violation.

We’ll be gradually rolling out this new feature over the coming weeks to all publisher accounts.
