I know for sure if you click on your own adds you are in trouble...
I am sure clicking on an ad on a comp that you checked your account on is a no no too...
In fact, if you are on a college network like I am, you should try and keep your friends who are campus from clicking too, that def adds to it..

You are supporting your theory discussed in another thread. This is how it looked from your point of view. Google saw easy violations: people clicking on your own ads from the same PC that you used to check the stats. They don't know if it was you or someone else, it was easily detectable TOS violations.
You would belong to the 1st category. Because people would have your page as a bookmark or a starting page. Means that you suddenly have visits from nowhere and clicks. Of course there could have been other sources & this is only my speculation and opinion.

Hmm, in another thread, a little over a month ago, I specifically asked and was assured by numerous people, including AdSenseAdvisor him/herself that page referral info was not available to or tracked by GAd, although others seem not so sure.

Basically the main thing is your ip address, if its not your ip address that you log into adsense control panel with then they cant say that its you. So thats basically it, though they could use the google cookie that is set to also tell if you have clicked your own ads. This is just what i think. Theres not an awful lot they could do i guess in the way of detection.

(coughs)AOL or any other major ISP.
Actually, there's quite a lot they can do to trigger a fraud alert.

Thats not what he said (or at least my interpretation of it).He stated no personally identifiable information. To my mind that would NOT include a referrer. How would a referrer be classified as PI info.?

This would be effective against "own clickers" and people who think it may be fun to use proxies.

I tried to start a thred about 2 pages of referals but no one answered.
I am an advertiser and when someone clicks on one of my content ads, I see what page the ad was clicked on as well as the page the clicker was on before clicking the ad.
This is great information for me.

It's for this reason that I delete all my cookies prior to logging into my account, on the verrrrryyyy off chance that a visiting in-law might decide to visit one of my sites and then, sparked by curiosity, click one of the ads. True, this isn't likely to happen, but any chance of it happening is too much.
