Just got an email from Google AdSense. They canned my account.

Edit: This doesn't mean I'm going to stop blogging, though. The money was always just a bonus for me. Hopefully all of you still drop by now and then to take a look at how things are going, and those that do can count on my continued support.


  1. Share the e-mail with the rest of us?

  2. Hello,

    After reviewing our records, we've determined that your AdSense account
    poses a risk of generating invalid activity. Because we have a
    responsibility to protect our AdWords advertisers from inflated costs due
    to invalid activity, we've found it necessary to disable your AdSense
    account. Your outstanding balance and Google's share of the revenue will
    both be fully refunded back to the affected advertisers.

    Please understand that we need to take such steps to maintain the
    effectiveness of Google's advertising system, particularly the
    advertiser-publisher relationship. We understand the inconvenience that
    this may cause you, and we thank you in advance for your understanding and

    If you have any questions or concerns about the actions we've taken, how
    you can appeal this decision, or invalid activity in general, you can find
    more information by visiting

  3. I was sitting around $130 or so :x
    I'd already spent about $75 I didn't technically have on new knife materials already xd
    If they do reinstate my account, I'll probably delete all comments and very likely this post too, just a heads up.

  4. Thank you for sharing! But I hate reading stuff like "[t]hank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation." They're being pretty presumptuous IMO. And just how does one 'not cooperate?' I mean really lol

    Still looking forward to your updates! -KC.

  5. Sure thing! And I just realized I'm using the wrong email account. OH WELL.
    Anyway, the weather forecast for tomorrow says it'll be sunny, so I should be able to get a video up of the knife use. Oh, I just realized I have some footage of grinding out the knife I could upload right now. I should get on that.

  6. Man, that blows. You have a legitimate blog! Oh well, definitely keep posting though!

  7. aww thats lame tho. after you made all the money for them

  8. Agreed with above. I'll still keep checking in though! Like I said before, I'm here to look at the exotic knives. Hopefully, this won't slow down your knifemaking because of costs, but I imagine as long as you have buyers, you shouldn't be too put off. :O
