Bob Allen Costs GOOGLE AdSense $3000/mo. Account

Tonight I sent an email to the owner of a company that sells self-defense products online. They have close ties to law enforcement, and work with the local sheriff's dept.. I notified him that his company's ads were appearing on cop-hater Bob Allen's blog, right next to posts advocating the murder of policemen.

The owner emailed me back within half an hour. He notified me that he had already suspended his $3000 per month AdWords campaign until GOOGLE could assure him that his ads would not appear on http://bobstruth.blogspot.com. Here's an excerpt from his heartening email:

Robin,
Thanks for brining this to my attention. As I assume you know, Google has Adwords on millions of websites. I seriously doubt they screen them. I think this Bob Allen guy is an idiot... I do not condone him in any way nor do I want expensive Adwords dollars being used to fund him in any way so I suspended my Google adwords account and sent the following email to administration:

I paused my Adword account until this can be taken care of. ...I spend about $3,000.00 a month with them, so I am pretty sure they will pull the ads from his site. I don’t want the kind of people who frequent sites like Bob’s to be buying my products, I don’t need the money that bad.
...in my line of work, it is not always about being right, we must also appear to be right. I work for the sheriff’s department here... and we are a family owned business that is one of the oldest self defense sites on the internet. We pride ourselves on quality products, excellent customer service and we most definitely care about credibility and public perception.

...I think you have enlightened me about some negative things done with Adwords and in response I have pulled ALL my ads until they can guarantee my ads will not be posting on his site. I assume you will get a similar response from the other merchant.

So good luck with your quest and let me know if you ever need anything.

Great to hear from a man not afraid to immediately and boldly act against hate speech. He made it clear that he thought Bob Allen had the right to spew his idiotic views, but he had the right not to contribute to him in any way.

I agree. Hopefully, Google will too, soon. Eventually, it will cost them enough that they'll enforce their own policies and dump Bob Allen.

Nice work, Robin. Bob Allen's blog is hideous and would tarnish the name of any legitimate business advertising there.

I've been backing up bob's blog and comments. If he gets shut down he can use my server.

masc man: what do you expect from someone who sells to police and not "lowly civillians". Those types of buisnessmen are enemies of all Men as it is the police who enforce women's rights.

This is almost unbelievable. This manufacturer must be high or something. He suspended his entire $3000 a month Google account just because of one site? This guy's clearly an idiot.

And you know what, he's never going to get that "guarantee" from Blogger because even if Blogger removes Bob's site, there's still at least 50 MRA blogs that have ads left on Blogger, and he'll whine about those just the same as Bob's site, and they'll ALL have to be removed (which won't happen) before he gets his inane "guarantee".

He's trying to hide away in a feminist fantasy world, only problem is that with each passing day there's less and less of a feminist fantasy world for him to hide in.

He's facing the same dilemma that any CEO has to face, that of preparing his business to face a changing world, and so far he's failing miserably.

If he thinks this is going to be anyone else's loss besides his, he's sadly mistaken.

Robin Steele - While I cannot expect you to grant my request, please immediately cease referring to yourself as a men's rights activist, you are nothing of the sort.

Your actions against MRA web-blogs while simultaneously claiming to be an MRA is disgusting, and openly deceitful.

We certainly do not approve of your continued lies about what you really are; a feminist trying to pretend to be an MRA.

Robin

As you claim to be an Attorney. What do you think of Judge Dierker's book
"The Tyranny of Tolerance: A Sitting Judge Breaks the Code of Silence to Expose the Liberal Judicial Assault"?

Who asserts that Liberalism and Feminism have perverted Justice and the Judiciary? Are you aware of the latest miscarriage of Justice going on in San Jose? The San Jose Mercury News reported on the phony Lab results on Monday?

How do you respond to the US Dept. Of Justice refusing to look into the Duke Lacrosse case? And the Prosecutorial and Law Enforcement misconduct?

William L. Anderson, Ph.D. writes about this on Lewrockwell's website about the Duke Whitewash. As a Man's Rights Activist how do you respond to these questions?

Lukey, I just love listening to you ramble and call people idiots when you have no idea what you're talking about. AdWords controls the ads... Not blogger. And once they terminate your account, you can't use adwords anywhere. Not even if you're hosted on Anonyboy's superserver.

He's spending $3000 per month... doesn't he have the right to control where his ads appear? Why would a company in favor of law enforcement advertise on a site that condones violence?

You think Bob Allen is a Men's Rights Activist? What rights? What advocacy? I propose solutions; he proposes "impaling" people in the town square and dumping bodies in ditches, then hides behind his lame disclaimers disavowing violence. This guy's too chickenshit to even stand by his own beliefs... even anonymously.
He doesn't advocate anything but spurring others on to violence that he won't do himself. Rally behind him if your definition of MRA is woman-hater or psychopath.

War is psycopathic. Only psycopaths go to war. War does change things though, you need to recognize that. It seems many MRAs want change at any cost. If this is so then War would be the fastest way, if they can pull it off. Can they? Will they?

bcunderdog said Nice work, Robin.
Thanks, bc.
Timberpup said... said Your actions against MRA web-blogs...is disgusting
I haven't taken action against MRA blogs. Do MRAs advocate rape? Violence against women? Killing police? Bob Allen is not a Men's Rights Activist. Neither is Masculisp Man. What rights have they gotten for men? In fourteen years Masculist Man cannot point to one concrete accomplishment. Bob Allen only has one: November 2002 Kook of the Month Award on the soc.men bulletin board. He even got banned from a nudist website for being an idiot.

Judging from the 25 word title, it sounds like an electrifying read. I take it Dierker is not known for his brevity or conciseness.

It's not a 25 word title.

The title is "The Tyranny of Tolerance". It is a 4 word title.

"A Sitting Judge Breaks the Code of Silence to Expose the Liberal Judicial Assault" is the subtitle.

Robin Steele said...

Actually, Luke, as it is connected by a colon it is a single title. But feel free to point out it's not really 25 words. I can then teach you about sarcasm, exaggeration, even hyperbole.
Luke, once you're done counting the words in the title, be a good lad and go count the Google ads on The World According to Bob, will you? Come back and let us know how many of his fraudulent ads are still up, OK?
