Heads up – Google ads is giving us more aggravation, this time – the first time – not for photos. They flagged this story https://lesfan.com/?post_type=fiction&p=67909 by @Succulent1 I’m assuming it was flagged for the “n” word which I have now used *** to edit. I am sorry. This is not my choice, but Google ad revenue keeps this site online. Should the time come that Google kicks us out of the ad program, I’m going to have to ask for monthly donations to keep us going. The good news is we will then have NO ads on the pages! Nothing is happening yet – I just wanted to keep you all informed.
Here is what Google said:
As stated in our program policies, Google ads may not be placed on pages that contain content that:
Threatens or advocates for harm on oneself or others;
Harasses, intimidates or bullies an individual or group of individuals;
Incites hatred against, promotes discrimination of, or disparages an individual or group on the basis of their race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, age, nationality, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or other characteristic that is associated with systemic discrimination or marginalization.
Re: Google’s policy [jawdrop]. Are the hate sites patrolled the same way? [sorry if that gets you into trouble, @Jacky. Was puzzled — and it seems disingenuous to apply it so strictly to this site if it isn’t to sites that actually peddle that type of toxicity]. Here for any fundraising. And thank you for everything that you do for this community.
