Here's a link to Cliff's post. http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum6/HTML/116185.html It looks serious this time.

You may have noticed no ads are being displayed anymore. There's usually one at the top of a thread page and one at the bottom. But, Google has disabled all ad serving to Fiero.nl. Why? Because a while back, somebody started a thread with subject "Pedoph****" and in that thread a few images were posted of girls over 18, but with the clear intention of looking much younger. Google's bots found that thread (even though by now it was already archived) and it caused ad serving to be disabled site wide because it's a violation that Google considers very severe.

Google's FAQ says that after such a violation, their decision to disable ad serving on a site is usually final. But I've already deleted the thread and appealed their decision. Hopefully they will enable ad serving since without it, I will not be able to keep the site up because it would be too big a burden for me financially.

So the moral of the story? You might think it's fun to post stuff like that. But the consequences for Fiero.nl can be severe. So please be careful what you post.

I actually did look, did not see any posts under General Fiero chat at the time. I did see the post in OT, where Cliff said "I can't keep this forum running without the ads" . Well maybe, just maybe if enough of us pitched in, we all could help keep this place running with out adds. rinselberg made a post also, guess his was okay.

Wondering why your calling me out for trying to help ? .... I was trying to do something good.

"calling you out" ??? You can't be serious.

There didn't seem to be any point in you duplicating a thread already started in this section that already had 75 posts in it and was at (or very near) the top of the list.

I glad you're concerned about the forum. I'm concerned as well.

One positive way to look at CoolBlues post is the more posts there are the chances of EVERONE seeing the problem is greatly increased.

I thought it was important to put the link out there, for those that can to help donate. I hope Cliff can find a way to keep the doors open.
