Since you previously reported that you were terminated from the AdSense program, Google has blocked your site. If you attempt to put someone else's code on your site, you are jeopardizing their account.
I also see that you are encouraging your users to click on your CPC ads on your forums. This is probably why your AdSense account was terminated. It'll get your other CPC accounts terminated as well. It's websites like yours that ruin CPC marketing for everyone.

If you put anyone else's code under this:"Please Visit Our Sponser to support us!" they will be in trouble.
I don't think the ads will even show since the site is blacklisted, but you never know.

|i saw some sites, which are using some others adsense code |
How would you know these sites are using someone else's code? Remember, a publisher can add the same code to multiple sites if they own the sites, or have the permission from the owner to add it.
You would be unable to show ads regardless of whose code you used, because when you were suspended, your domain would have been blocked.

|so, can i add my cousin's code :D |
So now after being canceled by Google AdSense you want to spoil it for the rest of us? Please don't do it. Find other ways to channel your frustration. Please.

A bit off topic.
Is it okay with AdSense to ad "Please Visit Our Sponser to support us!" on the site?

I suppose the 'old reverse psychology will come into it, similar to "check my home page url in my profile, does it look OK", when it's really someone elses site with the poster aiming to get the site banned, not that I'm suggesting anyone in the thread would do that :)
If there is a strict "no" to the posters question, I can see people adding someone elses code in the hope they can get them banned from adsense.

Interesting idea Brotherhood, hmmmmm. Although there was no adsense code running on that site so I guess that this might not be his intention and it really is his already banned site.
But it does make sense that some "Evil-doer" might want to use that tactic.

"But it does make sense that some "Evil-doer" might want to use that tactic."
That is all the more reason that Google should provide more info to the publishers on individual website activity.
When logging into your account you can see which sites have your code.

The "Evil Doer" in the example we talked about, would only get away with it if your own site was not complying with the rules. Therefore, you would share some of the blame :)
I think that a webmaster should not be in the business of ratting out other webmasters that is why I objected to someone using those underhanded tactics.
I have personally sent a couple of webmasters emails about issues such as "double-serving", I even got one that wrote me back to thank me. However, if I came across a computer generated gibberish site running adsense, I might not be so understanding. After all, if the advertisers lose faith, everyone gets hurt.

I totally agree with you about ratting out other webmasters. In fact I even posted about sending email to webmasters in this thread in March. [webmasterworld.com...]

Any way thanks

We are not "angry". The nature of a discussion board gives itself to evolving discussions. If you go back, you will see that the first six replys were direct responses to the situation that you asked feedback on. While the topic changed a bit when "Brotherhood" brought up a related topic, no one is accusing you of doing that.
I think you are just missinterpreting the responses.

What I wrote was just something to bear in mind, the bigger picture of why google have their rules.
It's not like I want to spoil your chances, or anyone else, considering I don't know you ;)

I hope you can find out why you were banned from Adsense and fix the problem. In the meantime, if you see another webmaster doing anything underhanded, report them!
Little by little, the bad guys will be punished, and over time, it will not be worthwhile for them to continue practicing the dark arts.

I am also sorry if you think anything I wrote was directed at you.
I quoted loanuniverse thinking he was responding to the line brotherhood of LAN stated "I can see people adding someone elses code in the hope they can get them banned from adsense".

You had "Please Visit Our Sponser to support us!" appearing directly over your CPC ad on your main page as well as a discussion topic that you started on your forums specifically asking your users to click on the ads. Both of these have now been removed.
If either of these appeared when you were in the AdSense program, you were in violation and the termination was warranted.
