WILLING to give Google money, but they won't take it - FURIOUS!

I just got rejected from putting ads on Google search for my website! They said it was because it has ads!

Can someone explain the bloody LOGIC of this?!!!

I also tried to find out how to advertise on Duckduckgo, but over there it tells me to sign up to some MICROSOFT Bing network!!!
Which obviously I wouldn't like to do!

Well, it is a for-profit company with a machine in the cellar that prints hundreds of $1000 dollar bills by the second, so they couldn't care less about single ad clients.

I have heard that they are strict and don't care one whit about whether you advertise with them or not, they're simply too rich and powerful and have more than enough cash in the bank to last them forever. So why should they care?

There's nothing you can do about this, simply try another ad service like Ad Dynamo.
