    Well that site was mildly humerous. I only got a click on the ad comment twice and both times a flash ad appeared. I'd say it would be easy enough for them to program their script to point to a non-AdSense ad for both of those "pages".

    Oh by the way the little script gives up on the "don't click here" routine after around 80 clicks and no it doesn't start over.

    It actually doesn't link back to the beginning. That was a ploy. It keeps going for awhile longer and then just says that's enough and ends.

    I can still see the Adsense ads on the same page. It's such a shame!

    Interestingly the ads coming up on that page are on topics like limb lengthening, plastic surgery, liposuctions e.t.c.

    <script type='text/javascript'><!--
    google_ad_width=300;
    google_ad_height=250;
    google_ad_format='300x250_as_new';
    google_ad_type='text_image';
    new_google_ad_channel='B_O,BO_728';
    var channelIds = new Array('0358108966O','2947953478O','8583562628O','9652942824O','965294282475O','965294282476O','965294282477O','965294282400O');
    //-->
    </script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='/GoogleAds.js'></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js'></script>
    <script type='text/javascript'><!--
    window.frames['google_ads_frame'].location = window.google_ad_url;
    //-->
    Code (markup):
    There adsense code is different as well so I believe that they are premium publishers.. if not then count it as another violation.

    Here is the source code for their Googleads.js

    I'm sure even with a premium publisher account you're not able to encourage people to click on the ads.

    No doubt about that since policies are the same for publishers of all sizes. This site in question has modified the code itself as you can see in my previous post so to me, it's another violation.

    There were some sick comments on that page with a "dont click here" button. I don't remember the text exactly but it was something like "I hate kittens, everytime you click here a kitten dies, you killed a kitten, another kitten" somebody report them to animal right activists please.

    Sure am glad I'm not an Adwords client getting my ads appearing on that site.
    Such a shame that they are the real losers in the whole scheme.
    ...and yes, it is a scheme on the part of the webmasters there.
