    No one has. It's pretty obvious to me that you don't want to pay for traffic from your page to your own page. You might as well donate that money or give it to me. You'd looping traffic in circles whilst paying for it with AdWords and only getting up to 80% of that money back through AdSense.

    Not a good business model.

    The only way you should is if you have a content site and work off the GoogleCash model and you don't want a straight affiliate link on your page for some reason.

    Not likely, I know, so blocking yourself probably is a good thing.

    the only reason I can think of is the effect it would have on your CTR.

    I don't know if it will be a good effect or a bad effect. I haven't tried it, but I imagine that users won't click an ad to the same site they are already on. So I'd be that by NOT having the filter there it will hurt your adwords performance more than help it. Just a guess.
