Thinking that maybe the fire had died down some, the other day I tried setting up a new account for one of my sites. Forget it. Apparently I've been permanently labeled as potential trouble for Google (by mere association), and I'll never be able to use Adwords...ever.
The sad thing is that I'm not an affiliate trying to peddle someone else's questionable goods. My products are 100% original, they're high quality, and they're not available elsewhere on the Web for free (thus I shouldn't be violating any of Google's TOS).
Oh well. I'm sure this is old news for many of you.
