Anyone running this vBulletin hack that splits revenue between forum member who start or participate in a thread?

For those running the hack, any problem with click fraud or Google banning your Adsense account? Seems to me there is a potential for abuse, though I like the concept of sharing rev with other members and providing an oncentive to post.

Thoughts appreciated.

I haven't seen this hack, but I'd be very afraid of it. There's an incentive to post, but there's a greater incentive to click (takes less time, plus the return is assured). I don't know how sensitive Google's click fraud detection is for that scenario (you aren't clicking, but one of your members clicks often), but I wouldn't chance it personally. Plus, you are likely to encourage the wrong kind of posts from the wrong kind of posters. "My uncle has mesothelioma..." ;)
