   It’s ALIVE!!

Twenty hours after my Adsense Nonsense post, the following surprisingly humble bit of contrition arrived (I’ll give it the same conversational treatment I gave original notice):

Hello Mr Stock,

Please accept out apologies for an erroneous notification that was sent
out to you on January 28th in regards to your site

I love getting “out” apologies. That is way out, man!

Seriously, nice to see a typo in there. It’s a relief to realize that some human is involved in this process.


Adsense Nonsense

I’ve spent nine years promoting the Google brand worldwide — creating a viral marketing phenomenon to Google’s benefit across tens of thousands of channels, in dozens of languages — including venues from grade school coursework, to academic papers, to off-Broadway shows. Today, I’ve been rebuked for doing so.

The complaint came from… well, can you guess? No, not Microsoft — neither nor Apple nor Facebook nor Twitter. The complaint came from none other than Google itself.

I wish I could address this response to the person who sent me the complaint. But, for reasons that will become obvious, I can’t; they’re anonymous and unreachable. So, I’ll blog it instead. If enough readers like, cite, link, and retweet this article, perhaps Google will get the message.
