Glad to have you here John. I appreciate the links you posted.
I've always found it interesting that there are help forums for products yet no official representation. I think of it as announcing in your city, that there is a seminar. It's in a stadium and there are 20,000 people there. The stage is empty, and remains empty for the entire duration of the seminar. It's like a informational seminar without any host or representation. Sure everyone is there for the info and the session, but the stage is empty. The people in the stands (the publishers) talk amongst themselves as there isn't anyone from the company who are hosting this event. As bizarre as that sounds, this is accurate.
Regarding the OP, I noticed a bizarre amount of invalid clicks on a specific adsense unit. It was very odd behavior. I investigated further and realized that my issue most like was a conflict with a chikita ad which I had forgotten was even on the page. The past two days the invalid clicks seem to have gone away. It's a note to self that odd behavior from ads needs to be addressed by me looking into it before Google has to close or ban my account. Attention to detail more than anything is what I'm reminded of.
