I've hit a strange problem with AdSense relating to the color palette, I carefully try to match background colors, text colors, link colors etc to whatever theme I'm using.
After I get me palette just right (all five colors) and create my large rectangle ad everything usually looks good on page. Then I use the same palette for the linklist, and this is where things are getting weird.
Instead of using the background color from the palette, big G are using the border color as the background in linklists. This means I'm going to have to create two palettes for each theme I use which gets mighty confusing after a handful of sites. Anyone else noticing the same thing?
Show us a URL that is exhibiting the problem?
Sometimes Google changes your colors when it determines that you might be trying to fool people by making the ad text invisible. I don't know if that's relevant here.
OK, it's easybrowsing.info

Can you show us the ad colors you chose?
Sure, I just did a screenshot of the AdSense palette page
This gets weirder... when I use one of the older type ads with the same colors, the symptoms disappear.
Try this in your second AdSense block:
You'll see it still does the normal Google weirdness with their logo on the left.
google_ad_client = "pub-4394305856464210";
google_ad_width = 468;
google_ad_height = 15;
google_ad_format = "468x15_0ads_al_s";
google_color_border = "45464B";
google_color_bg = "0D0D0D";
google_color_link = "FFFFDC";
google_color_text = "FFFFDC";
google_color_url = "828170";
