I did not ask however for "It's not Google's job to give you pointers on how to build your web site or show you how it will look with advertisements before you are a part of the program.". I also did not ask for any advice to that effect. The link I submitted had text and validates to XHTML 1.0 Strict, if you don't have an ACID3 compliant web browser you would not have seen the text and this is not your fault.
If you dislike certain forum discussion you should refrain from such discussion. If you don't like criticism towards you, you should not criticize people asking questions "You're missing the point, Ryan.". It doesn't make you better than someone to put them down without actually presenting facts and saying "This is how it is.". Needless to say I don't think I'm going to be using these discussion boards any further.
You have problems with narcissism "I have just given you some extremely helpful and constructive criticism", you're not 12, you don't need to boost yourself up. If you genuinely helped me and kept and open-mind I would have given you such praise.
"I'll also point out that your site will never be approved if the link you posted is representative of what you plan to submit to Adsense." Are you claiming to be the AdSense team? I guess they don't need an application process with you around, you already know all the answers! They should just hire you! You're clearly a diamond in the rough.
Enjoy putting people down with simple questions. I hope you get flagged or/and banned from this forum as it would significantly improve the quality.
