Google and Guns Updated

In an update to Google being anti-gun (but apparently pro-hooker), here’s the latest correspondence:

Thanks for your thoughts on the wording of our program policies. I’m happy to pass along your comments to our engineering and product teams.


The Google AdSense Team

I reply:

Thanks. Please tell them that their support for free speech speaks volumes.

You may also wish to inform them that Google ads are currently displaying items that focus on firearms at my other websites. Quite ironic that you guys will sell them.


I just want to see how long it takes for them to shut off ads at this site. Full disclosure: I make about $120/month with Google ads. Meanwhile, I hope MS does come out with an alternative to Google ads.

    It’s really, really not a good thing when Microsoft seems like our only hope for free speech.

    Still using GMail?

    Yes, I’m going to continue to beat that drum.

    Problem is that Microsoft is likely to be as anti-gun as Google, but I think it is possible to complain to them and get things changed (if a big enough organization complained).

    You think?

  5. Microsoft Gun Club | The Firearm Blog Says:

    […] was not aware that Microsoft employees had their own gun club until SayUncle pointed it out in a comment on his blog! Apparently they are quite active. In 2000 they donated at least $100,000 to the NRA. […]

  6. SayUncle » More on Google ads and guns Says:

    […] may know that I’m in a bit of a back and forth with them. See here, here, here, and here. Well, Steve notes that google advertises at their own gun site, a google group. […]

  7. Yahoo, Microsoft and Google do not allow gun blog advertising | The Firearm Blog Says:

    […] Google’s restriction is only restricted to sales but this has not stopped them from banning gun bloggers. […]

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
