AdSense pretty much re-uses the mechanism from the search engine. It comes
as-is and the algorithm does a certain thing. If you complain to Google
about the algorithm, it is unlikely they will review and change it. It
would have affected many people if they did.

I guess my message is: you must adapt to AdSense rather than expect AdSense
to adapt to you. Google AdSense is a free product just as a lawyer is; it
takes its cut from the profits. Things would be different had you paid to
get it installed...
