Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
I clicked some (less than 4) ads on my site, in fact I am very interested in the information behind the ads, to be frank, the owners of those ads were my competitors, so I am really intersted in their products, and would like to take a look at them (of course with no intention to buy them). And this morning, I received google`s warning mail, how can I do with it? Thanks for your kindness!

My advice would be to heed the warning. If you continue stealing money from your competitors by clicking on their ads when you have no intention of buying, you'll have no one to blame but yourself when AdSense cancels your account.

Every time you click on an adsense ad simply to spy on your competition you are effectng the ROI of the advertizer.
To be honest I tend to mouse over an ad to see the url then type in the address. It makes things a lot less complicated. You can then choose to bar an advertizer from your adsence control panel.
Clicking on ads is just asking for trouble IMOI.
9. How do I know the URLs of the ads on my site?
If you would like to add a URL to your filter list but the path is not visible, please do not click on the ad to retrieve the URL. Clicking the ads on your site will artificially drive up advertiser costs. You can obtain the URL in one of two ways:
Mouse over the title of the ad.
The URL will appear in the bottom left of your web browser.
Right-click on the title of the ad.
At the bottom of the menu that appears, click 'Properties.'
The destination URL will appear beside 'Address: <URL>.'
(The URL relevant to your filter list only includes everything after '/url?q=.')
