recently my site's adsense ads were getting click bombed from a european country. it was obvious abuse. while i enjoyed looking at the rather large balance i sent adsense a feedback + screencap of my report from the adsense homepage.

then i went to this page to make a more specific report, [support.google.com...]

the page totally spooked me. it almost sounded like such reports will be regarded as a confession of wrong-doing or at least incompetence. like if i make the report i'd be terminated. so i abandoned that option and quietly banned the country from the site. the stats are fine now and i assume adsense will just do a clawback in the end.

anyone else has had this dilemma? did you use that page to report abuse? what happened?

"Sorry, this page can't be found.

looks like the system here added the end period to the url. try:

[support.google.com...]

@Lame_Wolf there is a preiod "." appended to the end of the link. If you remove it will take you to the form.

I see it now. I've never used or seen that form before. I've only made 2 invalid clicks before with my account, and contacted then straight away. Both instances were due to a laggy browser.
