What is Google doing here?

On January 30 my Google Play account was terminated. I posted about it here.
Yeah, whatever. I saw that coming.

What I am perplexed about is what AdMob is doing:


It takes three violations and you are exterminated with extreme prejudice by Google Play. No mercy or remorse. They wipe you out with zero second chances.

AdMob, however? Since February 2nd I have 21 violations and the account is still active?
Every single email reports the violation as:

GOOGLE PLAY REMOVAL: AdMob publishers are not permitted to abuse or promote the abuse of any Google product, such as Google Play, YouTube, or Blogger. This includes circumventing, or providing the means to circumvent, the policies or terms of these or other Google products, such as by allowing users to download YouTube videos.

I have no clue what this means. I am assuming they don't like their ads on suspended apps.
Of course I cannot fix whatever the issue is on any of the apps since the account is gone.

Well, they've got about fifty apps to go. At this rate I'll be getting these ridiculous emails for months. Why don't they just terminate the entire account already? I've already updated the apps on the other app stores with Leadbolt ads.
