CrowdReport flags potentially inappropriate content for review, and will eventually incorporate the ability to automatically prevent the rendering of display advertisements on pages with questionable or offensive user generated content.Source.
The way I read that, all one has to do is simply post something "questionable or offensive" and adverts will not be shown.
I somehow think this will result in content being removed as non-monetizable.
During the 2013 calendar year, we intend to continue to prune our network of non-monetizable pages. We do not expect that the pruning of those non-monetizable pages and any resulting reduction in total monthly page views will adversely impact revenues.CROWDGATHER, INC. FORM 10-Q
I'm afraid I foresee a lot of content being removed from view and forum closures. If CrowdGather are being nice about this, perhaps they may allow the content to remain if the forum pays for an ad-free experience. This may not be worth their while though and they may only want the cream of the crop, so they can make money.
Of course money needs to be made though. The service has been making huge losses for quite some time now. I wonder when they will find out that many of their larger content servers are quite full of "questionable or offensive user generated content"? Will this be implemented in a nice way or will they be ruthless?
They should add a new clause to their TOU along the lines of : "Post content we can make money from or risk it being removed.".
Arguably better than pop-unders, I will give them that!
Innuendo and double entendre message boards should be able to do rather well, unless the blanket "we can do what we want" clauses are invoked.
The stock market has not really reacted to the news with shares sitting between the six and eight cent mark. The peaks look very manipulated by very low volume transactions.
