I think Brett has a point here. Simply stating that you make money from Adsense, just as a statement of fact, should not constitute encouraging clicks. That is simply stating, without bias, a fact that anyone could easily discover by reading Google's own marketing material regarding Adsense. Accurately stating facts that are already public knowledge is a TOS violation? That seems pretty unreasonable.
Unreasonable? I am not so sure.
If I place a flashing red arrow on my website pointing to my Adsense ads with text telling people that I get paid if they click the ads it could also be argued that this was a statement of fact.
