Should I do something about Page enforcements in the Policy centre?

I used to always remove ads from pages that contained policy violations and the eforcements would disappear after a few days. Recently though, I went ahead and cleaned up a few things on my site and decided to reinstate all ads on all pages. So after a few days, I was back at at 26 Page enforcements. I went ahead and checked some of those pages and to my surprise, ads were still running on those pages altough they were flagged with "Restricted ad serving". So this probably means that those pages are still generating income.

That's why I now want to ask you guys this question: should I do something about those enforcements, like remove the ads on the offending pages, or should I let them be and let google manage them? Can something bad happen if I accumulate many enforcements in the Policy centre?

Any help is appreciated!

Thank you.

I personally would address the content of the pages if the violations are repeating. Either that or just don't run Adsense on them going forward. It's not worth the risk of being terminated from the program altogether.

I think they let you know for a reason - best to deal with it eventually. I jump on them quickly or appeal them if I believe the algo made a mistake (a 'false positive') - which just happened to me this year (page talking about defense industry/guns was flagged for 'firearms promotion violation').
