Communicating with google is rather trying
We've been warned once before - back then the cause was Sofia too. I think Kiki's suggestion that it's the image search that's the problem is very likely. They simply stopped the ads with a message that we're on hold because of violation of their guidelines concerning nudity and sexually suggestive images. It would seem that once you're warned a second time, it takes a bit more to get it sorted out - it doesn't help that it's hard communicating with them
The whole process is making us think a bit about how we should deal with the future of RD. It's one thing that we've signed up for a function that is helpful for the upkeep of the board - it's another when that interferes with the content of the board. While a large part of the board is to serve as a place to discuss various topics, we feel that the board has also turned into a sort of archive. Having to take down photos is quite a problem then. I don't want to overestimate the board but if in the end Sofia becomes a HRH of Sweden and the naked photos of her are removed from the internet, having them of RD would actually be quite important and it's easy to see other scenarios like that. We're thinking of how to deal with that problem. In the meantime I would suggest that everyone who has photos they feel could be in danger of having to be removed, should save them on their pc's - once we come up with a solution we can put the pictures there.
