PLEASE NOTICE THE WORD "IF"
If denotes a hypothetical situation, certainly not an endorsement.
I would not nor would any of my colleagues ever click an ad fraudulently and I mean that in the most serious sense. As a matter of fact we make it a practice to never click any adsense ads as we are both publishers and advertisers.
This thread was meant to elicit awareness of a current event that has value as a discussion topic as both an advertiser and a publisher.
Just to make it clear I do not nor does any of my colleagues support, condone, or approve of clicking on an advertisement for any ANY reason other than being captivated by the value proposition contained in the text ad.
Also I support the Red Cross by donating blood and money every year. Letís keep the focus where it belongs, on the issues related to the ethics of this incentive practice in a marketplace we all have our dearly earned dollars in.
