Adwords on adult nature and misleading web pages

Is Google more tolerant nowadays towards Adsense publishers?

I'm seeing more and more Google ads on pages with adult nature content and also on pages with misleading placement of ads (aligned with photo, ads placed under large photos to make it look like a "next" arrow; ...).

When I reported this type of pages a year ago, Google took down the ads immediately, which was good for advertisers. I reported several misleading and adult nature pages with Adwords ads more than a month ago, and then again a couple of weeks ago ... but no action at all from Google's side. It's seems to be acceptable practice now.

Is Google becoming more tolerant and actually wasting advertisers money?

Maybe those ads are making a lot of money for Google. Allowing them could be an easy way to expand their revenue and profits even if their search share doesn't Increase or even declines slightly.

I think what you're seeing might be related to something I've been noticing, which is tabloid-type ads on Google's search results pages. I started a thread about this almost a week ago:
