I guess I'm not wording my question right.
I understand the effect of "DNT" on sites. My question is:
"...how does 'My' using this service effect 'My' status with adsense?"
There may be no data on - adsense publishers who use do not track.

so you mean is there a hypocrisy penalty?

Maybe (hypocrisy penalty) something like that
A "No Mining" penalty
"If we can't profit from selling your profile we're not interested in putting top notch ads here..."
On the other hand I realize it's just me opting out so they still have thousands of innocent people to pillage

technically google could profile you and the urls you visit and see that the ads are being requested but not analytics when normally both would be referred requests from a url.
not sure why google would tie that to your adwords account and penalize you.
google really wants to maximize income and <cough>the best visitor experience</cough> so serving low quality ads just to spite a publisher for his browsing behavior isn't a good business plan.

I still don't know much but I'll tell you what I've got so far. By blocking all ad agency, social trackers and companies - except - google and add-this (which are the only two I use) the ads on my site are reflecting the content again.
Likewise ads on other sites are reflecting their content and not targeting me with personalized ads. So maybe it's less google and more the hundreds of other companies.
BTW, don't pay for adwords, so maybe publisher is wrong term for what I do. I have adsense ads on my site - that's it.
There is a drop in clicks for ads on my site, flat line actually, since around the time I started using DNT. That's the part I was questioning. We'll see what happens now that I've "Allowed" most google stuff.

Blocking all ad networks
Allowing tracking companies: Google and Add-This
After some time with these settings - Google is still throwing an occasional handful of nickels at me and Add-This analytics is working.
Also seeing ads based on content. Not personalized
I'm happy with service (Abine-Do Not Track) to date.
