It's easy enough to switch back on again.

thanks for the link jatar - i feel better already
- I re-enabled the ip blocking so the ads do not show up at all - i have a static IP so they are blocked - i had it of for some testing.

I wouldn't worry too much over one click, especially if you've emailed them about it. Someone I know accidentally clicked one of the ads the first week they installed AS, the click was never charged to the advertiser and nothing further came of it. The key is to report right away as you did and there should be no problem.

they replied - looks like i got a standard response based on the other posts - so I am all good.
I turned my ip filter back on so alls well that ends well.

I myself have clicked accidentally on my own ad.
But each time I try out a new layout I'll follow up with a single click to see what comes up.
I'd think they'd allow at least a tiny bit of investigation as a webmaster. After all, I'm not gonna put just any ole ad on my sites. Would you?
I would want to know what my visitors are going to experience when they themselves click on my ads.

well thatīs what the adsense preview tool is for isnīt it? you can click away with it without worrying about googleīs reaction. no need to click on the ads on your own site.
i have clicked on 2 ads in the last fortnight (on two different sites of mine) but i canīt believe they will close my aco#*$! for that.

Just a suggestion for anyone who may suffer from wild mouse slippage syndrome:-))
