I have the evidence via my StatCounter reports, yet I get the feeling my chances of having it so that his IP address doesn't charge me when he clicks my listing, is somewhere between zero and none.
What am I supposed to do?
Will my CPC gradually go down the more he clicks, so in theory he could be helping me in the long run?
they will nearly always say no to a refund the first time, sometimes the second, but keep at them and you should get a refund with a bit of luck.
Is it me, or are they asking for things, that they think I won't have, so can get out of any such refund? I'm thinking YES.
Why the hell do they need to know of any additions I've made, if it's regarding a single keyword? Call me cynical, but I'd go as far to say that Yahoo actually favour click fraud - if they are getting their money that's all they are bothered about.

for yahoo its about finding the right balance - allow it to a certain extent to make money from it, but not so much as to put people off advertising.
of course publically they will always say 'we have a number of different mechanisms to protect you from click fraud' etc...
I'd love to have some of that yahoo traffic but their network SUCKS
Blows me away they're so stubborn that they have forcasted strong growth over the next year. Strong growth in FRAUD if you ask me.
