Google advertises on their own Gun site but not on Gun blogs!

    SayUncle recently wrote here and here about how Google refuses to allow Google ads on gun blogs because….

    the content of your site is largely focused on firearms, the site is not a good fit for the AdSense program.

    I just realized that Google itself advertises on it’s own ‘site largely focused on firearms’! The Google Groups rec.guns group!

    Here is a screenshot of Google ads on one of the rec.guns posts:

    If this isn’t a double standard I do not know what is.

    I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!
