SUCCESS! Bob Allen Discontinues Ad Program.

Congratulations to all readers of the Robin Steele blog who urged Google AdWords and AdEngage.com to enforce their policies against website publishers who promote click fraud, hate and violence against individuals and groups. Thanks to your willingness to speak out and take action, Bob Allen, publisher of The World According to Bob has abandoned efforts to "monetize" his irresponsible and reprehensible hate site. Bravo!

Bob Allen's website openly advocates violence and rape of women and young girls, calls for public "impalings" of police officers and elected officials, glorifies mass murderers and rampage killers as heroes, and offers practical moneysaving tips such as killing your wife prior to divorce because "Dead cunts get no custody." Of course, Bob Allen contends his decision not to pursue yet anopther ad provider was not a result of being dropped first from the Google AdWords program and then AdEngage.com at recent urging of Robin Steele readers. In Bob's December 25 posting, he contends he decided to drop ads to protect the sanctity and purity of his site. His unwavering commitment to not commercializing his hatespeech is truly inspiring:
Note to Readers
Bob has decided that the ads detract from the message of The World According to Bob. For a while at least the ads will be discontinued. Ads may be returned at some later date when or if Bob decides that they are warranted. Thank you to all who have supported advertisers.

Good move, Bob. It would be a shame to detract from your important message. I'm sure your fellow MRIs don't suspect you have been outclassed once again. But feel free spend more time finding and signing up for new advertising programs. We are watching. We are waiting.

This is a small but important victory, and one you should be proud of acheiving. And victory against hate is an important victory. How appropriate that it occurred on the birthday of the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ.

Now, please join us in urging Blogger, the free blogging service that hosts Bob's site, in enforcing their policies against using their service to promote hatred and violence.

Excerpt from Blogger's site content policies:
HATEFUL CONTENT: Users may not publish material that promotes hate toward groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity.
VIOLENT CONTENT: Users may not publish direct threats of violence against any person or group of people.


When we work together for the cause of peace and justice for everyone - regardless of gender, race, religion or creed - there is truly no stopping us!

Again, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Robin Steele!

His latest form of revenue decided against him. I guess being an advocate of child rape will only get you so far.

I'm sure that he will try to make his blog more PC in the future. This is the response I got for bringing to attention Bob's blog.

"Thank you for your inquiry into this individual. AdEngage generally takes the line of always permitting free speech as it is guaranteed in the US constitution, and the right of every US citizen (as we are a US company), as long as the speech does not violate applicable laws. It is always a tough line to draw.

That being said - we do not believe that his content will encourage many advertisers to purchase on our network, and therefore his site has been denied admission to our network (when you had seen his site, he had not yet been approved).

Best Regards,

Adam
The AdEngage Team"


Bob is such a victim... Maybe he should try covering up his real thoughts just a little bit more so those "nazi" types won't censor him.

Or maybe he should get some professional help instead of dragging the MRA movement down with him.

Great work, Anonymous!

Thanks for taking the time out of your busy holiday schedule to send Bob a message.

We applaud Adam and AdEngage for acting quickly to protect its advertisers as well as its reputation by setting and enforcing its publisher guidelines and denying "Bob Allen" admission to the AdEngage revenue share program.

I also appreciate Anonymous for taking the time to share his/her personal views and observations on this disturbed individual and his destructive messages.

I get accused of trying to end free speech, but I am a great believer in freedom of speech and a believer in the American form of capitalism. I am not interested in making Bob Allen's hatespeech illegal. But I am exercising MY freedom of speech to show companies - like Blogger, Google, AdEngage, AdBrite, WordPress and others - and their customers the wisdom in enforcing their stated policies and exercising THEIR right of free speech by disallowing the ill-intentioned from damaging their brands and using their free services. Anonymous exercised his/her right and got results. Any statement against hate is an important one.

Again, Adam, Anonymous, and others who responded, thank you and thanks AdEngage for taking swift action and sending the message that not everyone on the Internet is self-absorbed, irresponsible and of sub-par intelligence.

Support AdEngage!
