To say that I was making a fortune with AdSense was a massive overstatement. You'd be surprised at the number of clicks I got throughout the whole time, which was only one. So, it wasn't a big deal when they found out that I was under-18 and closed my account.

Our Terms and Conditions require that publishers be at least 18 years of age in order to participate in the Google AdSense program. For this reason, your account has now been permanently closed. In order to comply with AdSense policy, an adult must be responsible for the site. Your parent or guardian may submit a new application at http://www.google.com/adsense. Please note that, should the new application be approved, all payments will be made to the adult responsible for the site.
For a complete list of AdSense criteria, please visit:
We will pay out your disabled account according to the payment schedule outlined in the AdSense Terms and Conditions (https://www.google.com/adsense/terms). Accounts with a final balance of US $100 or more will be paid during the next payment cycle, while accounts with a balance of less than US $100 will be paid within approximately
30 days of the end of the year.
Thank you for your understanding. Feel free to reply to this email if you have additional questions or concerns. For technical support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

I'd be happier without ads on this blog anyway. =)
