    google censorship
    I just unpaused one of my ammo ads and I got an e-mail from google.

    Yeah, once okay, but now it gets rejected.

    I first paused all my campaigns. Then I just deleted them all. I know I probably overreacted but I just feel so disgusted.

    I should have posted part of the e-mail that I received. I got sidetracked.

    They don't allow it, they don't allow it. All ads get a free go until they are reviewed. Pretty simple how it works, I am not really sure what you are so upset about, did you read the agreement before running the ad?

    I know a merchant who got hit with the "no ammo" rules before Christmas. Google didn't even want the items on the landing page as a link.
    Innovative advertising with Slimeware Corporation and Telephore. Mail-order fuel with Petrol Direct.

    Ammo ads all over the freaking place when I added that ad. The first thing I do is to search the competition.

    And no, if I fully knew that google supports gun control I would never have spent one dime with them.

    As far as being upset. They like all media have the right to reject all ads. That is cool. I as a consumer have the right to tell them to go to hell. That is equally cool.
