Policy notification from Google

My Swedish site Folkmun allows anyone to add words and their definitions. It’s a simple Swedish version of Urban Dictionary. Some people add very explicit words and I had totally forgotten that such words may clash with Google AdSense policies. Today I received a friendly warning:

While reviewing your account, we noticed that you are currently displaying Google ads in a manner that is not compliant with our policies. For instance, we found violations of AdSense policies on pages such as
//www.folkmun.se/definition/Apaj%C3%A4vel. Please note that this URL is an example and that the same violations may exist on other pages of your website.

Needless to say, I have made a couple of modifications to the site, including hiding ads when displaying explicit words or definitions. If this wasn’t good enough, I’ll know in a couple of days…
