Asking Support for Clarification on TOS - Bad Idea?

Will it bring the ban?

After a careful review of a section of the Adwords TOS, it appears I was inadvertently operating in a gray area. I haven't gained anything by doing so...it was just a sloppy administrative thing. I'd like to find out if I need to fix it, or if it is allowed per the TOS.

But with all the recent banning, I'm afraid that if I was on the wrong side of the gray, I'll get banned.

Do I...
1. contact support and trust that being proactive will bode in my favor
2. get rid of the gray area and hope that some future algo tweak won't pick up grounds for a ban based on history

"contact support and trust that being proactive will bode in my favor"

Ha ha ha .. go for your second option and pray.

Edited.. Come to think of it.. This is a provocative post. I am sure you already know the answer to that one.

pdivi if you can see your in a gray area and as you said
I haven't gained anything by doing so...
why in the world would you want to continue, and even think of having the "Gray Area" reviewed.
Just makes no sense at all to me. Delete the gray area and move on why even have this worry waking up and you got a problem.

I would not hesitate to ask if I had a question, but you seem to be nervous about it, so just clean up the gray area, and let well enough alone.

Thanks, folks. Yeah, I'm just going to clean it up. I thought it might make sense to point out the gray area and have a paper trail to fall back on were I to trigger an automated review. But I agree, makes way more sense just to get things squeaky clean.

I would call and get it clear in my mind. That's what they are there for.
