Google Adsense… are they checking content?

I’ve run Google Adsense ads on my blog for some time, but recently I noticed a lot of “get rich quick schemes” and “weight loss products” along with questionable “Software Remedies” flowing through. This leads me to believe that there isn’t any quality check being done on ad content. For now I’ve disabled them,and I’ll await to see what Googles reply will be (I have sent a query about content) As I certainly wouldn’t want anyone to click a link that took them to a phishing site or similar…

I know that some will say why bother with those ads anyway! but I did see it as a remote possibility of funding some server upgrades! I’ll be waiting forever as most of us use FireFox with the ad-block plugin so they wouldn’t be seen anyway!  😉
