So I posted a question yesterday regarding GWD giving me false positive passes when publishing my ads to the AdWords network. (which seems to have magically disappeared)

The problem is related to GWD passing creatives that contain multiple exit URLs, when apparently Google AdWords wont allow them unless they are Dynamic Ads, essentially forcing customers to either spend extra time and money turning their creatives into dynamic campaigns  when they have absolutely no technical reason to be dynamic, or forcing the customer to purchase multiple ad spaces, also costing more time and money.  Great business model, but pathetic customer retention initiative.

Finally I suggested that if this basic functionality is no longer possible then I should probably just move my campaign over to Doubleclick which does allow customers to include multiple exits within their campaigns and doesnt force them to turn creatives into dynamic campaigns...I would really like to stick with Google AdWords but if they are going to force me to spend more money and time to achieve the same results than it makes absolutely no sense that anyone would stick with AdWords....my guess is this suggestion is what made my post magically disappear?

My main reason for posting here in the first place was to point out that your false positives in validating Google AdWords cost me 3 days work & that you guys should probably fix that as people tend to not really appreciate wasting their time and money.

Thanks, I look forward to a reply lol

The other post is still there and I replied to it this morning. 

Do you have an AdWords account manager that you can reach out to regarding this issue? You can also go to  AdWords Community Forum and raise your question there.

In the meantime, I talked to our Product Manager and we will add tests in the Ad Validator to issue warning when custom exit is used in AdWords ad in Google Web Designer. I'm so sorry for your loss of productivity.
