hizook and google

I recently found out about Hizook – a robotics news aggregator.

I found out from this story that was posted to Hacker News. It seems that Google thought their traffic spike was anomalous, and disabled their Adsense account without warning.

Thankfully it was re-enabled a few days later, but it does undermine some confidence in Google’s claim to “Do no evil”.
