  1. Why Google still sucks!

    I am most likely going to violate my own Terms of Service here, and I really do not care. Moderators, leave this post alone!

    In 2013 TWC was banned from Google Adsense for three policy violations. That's right, three. On a site that at the time had more than 2 million posts and 60k members. And just what were these flagrant violations?
