Accidental Click?

Apparently one of our designers accidentally clicked on a yahoo ad on our site, and yes using our share internet.

I know how Google handles these things, but haven't heard how Yahoo handles them, or should I notify them? Do they remove those clicks from our ips as part of the end of the month thing?

You can send them an email; I've done it a few times messing with the templates on my forums; I called them and they said not to worry about it, that it will be editied out in the daily audit, and as long as it doesn't become a habit theres no problem.

Yea, the basically said the same thing to me.

"Please, rest assured that we have technology in place that can identify accidental
clicks. We have a click validation system that runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
and vigilantly monitors click activity. Through our click validation process, we can
differentiate between regular clicks, accidental clicks, and click abuse."

So apparently they are ready for it.
