ok so it's a preference of yours...
you're the same as me then i digg them eheh
anyway is there some admin out there that can explain me their view?

Adsense sent me a message that says that my publisher ID is not in my Hubpages and HowTheyPlay ads.text files. My earnings are fine generally, not too concerned, just wanted to bring the issue to your attention.
