Yo, ATS. Censorship alert:
My buddy is trying to start an adwords campaign on Google for his Ebay store.
So he makes some banner ads.
They have a stylized stars-and-stripes design.
They say, 'JOIN THE REVOLUTION'.
Which ties in with his patriotic theme of revolutionary ultra-high-mpg motorcycles.
Google rejects the ads, based on the word 'Revolution', claiming it refers to a veterinary prescription drug.
Google hates the word REVOLUTION. As in 128 miles-per-gallon Revolution. Nothing about prescriptions on his site.
He's thinking about calling his bikes 'milk-toasty' now instead of REVOLUTIONARY, just to get Goo to stop shaking in their panties and allow his
ads to run.
This is Big Brother corporate censorship AT ITS WORST and its happening to MILLIONS of small business owners.
Do you think REVOLUTION is a no-no word?
Should Goo support FREE SPEECH?
