I too have been experiencing severe CTR depressions since the 11th.
So ... what happens? Does Google just not pay you for clicks for a couple of weeks every now and then?

You might also check to see if there's any big change in your unmatched ad requests.
That's why I've just come to accept that it's very possible that the stats we see aren't the whole picture.
Google might be falsifying all my stats
Again, you're using the word "stats". Please clarify. I'm saying that I was earning $100 per day and are now earning $1 a day. That's not a skewed stat. That is what I'm earning.
Of course, I could also see in Analytics that we'd dropped pageviews.
Unless you know something I don't, only Google really knows what the real numbers are. Pure speculation (at best) from what they give us is the reality.
I really don't know what you're talking about when you say "stats are pure speculation"That's to say that you have to take the stats (statistics) from AdSense as the only source of information unless you have an additional tracking on the ad code (we inject ads on half our sites so I can see how many times the file with the code gets requested and can match that with the statistics from AdSense). That doesn't do any good for tracking CTR but there are solutions for that too if you look for them.
