The Inscrutable God, by Eric Peters

Google punishes Eric Peters, but doesn’t say why. From Peters at theburningplatform.com:

Been there, done that. Eric will be losing all his Google Adsense revenue shortly.

I get periodic emails from Goo-guhl, the deity who lords over the online universe. He is – apparently – angered by something I’ve posted on my web site. He threatens repercussions, as vengeful deities tend to do.

But I have no idea why Goo-guhl is angered.

He merely tells me that he is

“New violations were detected,” I am advised. “As a result, ad serving has been restricted or disabled on pages where these violations of the Adsense Program Policies were found.”

I am am further advised that I may “resolve” these issues if I ” . . . remove the violating content and request a review or remove the ad code from the violating pages.” 

But the deity dose not deign to tell me what the “issues” are.

Which leaves me in a conundrum as regards how to “resolve” them.

I find myself in the position of a savage supplicating before an online totem pole or digital Htzlopochtli. How many hearts must I cut out of the chests of sacrificial victims with my obsidian dagger? Htzlopochli is mute.

But, polite.

The deity has the effrontery to send his (its?) “kind regards.”
