    Default Please don't post pictures of your stitches...

    Hi guys, I know its part of the woodworking culture but please don't post images of your cut and stitched fingers on the forum. We were flagged by google last month for an image posted in the Luthiers Lounge and now our adsense has been disabled again. We're hoping that we can be reinstated but if not, that one pic will have totally destroyed the income source we use to fund the operations of the entire UU forum.

    So please no more pics of stitched fingers.

    Thank you.
    Rayan, What you are doing?

    Unbelievable... I don't like seeing this stuff anyway but don't understand how it has jeopardized adsense?

    It was flagged for gore / violence which is against their terms of service for their display network.

    That's just weird. Did someone actually report it or does Google have some gore-recognition software? I'd better not post a pic of a neck I screwed up...

    How do we get away with showing pics of ukes that were sat upon???

    You're making light of an honest and serious appeal from one of the founders, asking to not jeapordize their source of income for this site?

    Really?!
