    Homer, I couldn't agree more. Most kids join, see disappointing results, and start finding way to get as many impressions as possible, even gray ways.

    I feel bad about what I did, spreading my site around the university computers, hoping for clicks. It was glaringly stupid.

    I lost my first check yeah, but I've played 100% by the book since, and Adsense is cool with me. I hope to keep things that way.

    But overall, it'd really be better for advertisers if kids were kept out. :(

    to Rubin

    When where you banned? Was it right before payment calculation?

    What are Red Squares? I was looking for someone with that name, but there is no one? Is RS = to AC?

    Yes but someone on this thread is giving our young friend some advice that may not be good? And, yes that person is 'red'.

    I think rubin_trend has to come out of it with some new found wisdom and I don't beleive the red square is doing that.

    Remember that rubin_trend is a newby and it would be my wish to help him with good advice not advice on how to cheat to get back in.

    rubin_trend, Yahoo is just around the corner for you with (hopefully) a comparable program. If Google elects to deny your request for reinstatement don't sweat, it's no biggy. In the future you'll be chuckling about this. Do the right thing and understand what went wrong here...learn a lesson from it...Join Yahoo when they launch (they are close).

    Hang tough buddy...it will work out for you :)

    What kind of site do you have? Not asking for the url or anything but was it popular?

    As for the kids issue, there isn't much that can be done about it. A 7 month old can tecnically have an adsense acount his his parents sign up for him.

    If Goggle looks long and hard at it I think they may consider uping the age. It really could result in bad PR for them if our children keep getting banned for life.

    The real problem is with children who keep abusing the adsense system. You are technically an adult when you are 18 should they up it to 21...lol

    I think in life permissions should be set as follows...

    1) Driving= age 16 (Learners)
    2) Beer= age 16
    3) Driving= age 18 (beginners)
    4) Adsense= age 21
    5) Marraige= age 28
    6) Children= age 30
    6) Divorce= age 38
    7) Success= age 40
    8) Meet someone new but don't get married because your still broke from the first one= age 43

    The only one I left out was sex and that's really a choice you may make at the time which may strongly impact points 5 through 8. ;)

    mmm...beer. I know I should not post useless info but sometimes I can't help it. My previous post was based on true life experiences (accept AdSense).


    I apologize for the selfishness :p

    Beer needs to be set to age 15. It's an acquired taste and kids need some extra time to get used to it. Yup. ;)

    I drink beer :) I start driving lessons in 6 months :D
    If there is one thing i have learned it is that drink-adsensing is as bad as drink driving, i.e. in both cases you are screwed, in one hand you have somebody with their face moulded into the windscreen, in the other hand you have somebody with an email from google saying your adsense account has been banned moulded into your inbox :D

    (it's 03:05am, i'm tired so dont blame me if the above post makes no sense i shall evaluate it tomorrow when i am awake)

    Wendy, I recommend you start your baby out with beer after the first month (get that clostrum [spelling?] into him/her first).

    There are several advantages:
    1. avoid the inconvenience of breastfeeding -- leave dad to do the feeding and head out for bowling with the girls
    2. no messy bottles to wash
    3. get a refund on the empties
    4. if s/he starts getting a little baby beer belly, switch to lite beer
    5. early training for farternities
    6. extra incentive for potty training
    7. if you get thirsty, you can swipe a bottle or two and until s/he learns to count who's the wiser?
    <edit>I was going to correct the spelling of farternities but then I though, "actually it should be spelled that way"...</edit>
