I'm getting policy violations for Adsense

    I've been getting a lot of policy violations from Google Adsense lately relating to sexual content and I'm wondering if it's Google manually checking or automatically checking my site with a bot? I own a forum where some users sometimes discuss sex because they're teenagers going through puberty. None of the images were porn, it's more like girls wearing skimpy clothes and teasing. I believe one of the images were of a side boob shot. Could this be one of my competitors digging really hard to get my Adsense account banned?

    In the past month, I had 4 policy violations which is happening more frequently than in the past. In 2014, I only had 1 violation. This year, within a month or so I already had 4 violations.

    Google give 3 days for me to resolve it and I usually do it before the deadline by removing the content. I'm not sure if it's my competitor or Google cause usually the URLs that they report are very hard to find for humans. I own a forum and some of the links that were reported were on page 80 of a thanks list which no one really views unless they are obsessively trying to get my account banned. Who actually scrolls through 80 pages of a user's thank list? It was also from the same user too. It's like they knew this particular user likes to post sexual content, but really...that person scrolled through 80 pages just to report my site.

    Does anyone know what happens if I don't resolve it within the 3 day period that they give me? Does my account get banned?

    4 AdSense Policy Guideline violations for sexual related content and your account is still active? Wow.

    Yes. I've had this adsense account for years and I always resolve every violation in time.

    I cant believe that your account is still up and running.Usually Google bans your account no matter what for sexual content.
    This could be somebody trying to get your account banned on purpose,I would figure out some way to censor the images from now on or get some mods on the forum or something.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Even if it's not nudity? Most of the photos that are reported on my site are just girls wearing bikini or showing some breast/butt skin.

    I feel really lucky now that I haven't been banned yet but I think my days are numbered. I think there is a difference between "Warning" as consequence though and whatever the other ones are as consequences. All my violations have been warnings only but they say if I don't resolve it in 3 days, I could get banned.

    EDIT: actually, I just checked again and in 2013 I got away with a pornography violation once. That's really strange...

    I also got one report for nudity where model was wearing bikini.... not really nude.
    I removed that picture within the given period and its fine now.

    I think its the Google bot routine check-up.

    Maybe your competitor is the one posting the pics.

    You get notification at the top when you login to your adsense account.
    Same type of notification as that you see when you get notification to verify your address.

    Bots Usually read coding and text on a web page.
    but i think adsense program does not show ads on sexual content.
