How do I report someone who is making a huge TOS violation?

Should I, or shouldn't I?

I hate to be a narc, but people like this make me sick. This guy has a blog directing people to free Real Time with Bill Maher shows.

It's a peice of crap blogger acct. On it he has a huge graphic that says, "Please support this click on one ad on my blog!" Support...what? It's a FREE blogger blog!

Obviously it's wrong to try to get people to click on ads, because it discredits the whole system and ultimately hurts everyone. If this stuff happens, advertisers and Google may see fit to give publishers LESS of a piece of the pie.

You can click on the adchoice logo inside the ad. This will redirect you to a support page of google. On the bottom you can report the website.

Would you have a problem calling the police if a neighbour's house was being burgled?

Click fraud is theft, just because the law enforcement agencies find it too complicated to deal with and leave it to G to simply ban accounts doesn't make it OK.

I agree with you and that's why I reported it. I think there have been cases where G has been too harsh on people, but in this case, it was fully warranted. This guy was way out of bounds.
