    I feel sorry for the kids who signed up for Adsense thinking this was a way to make cash and are now going to get banned from Adsense for their trouble.

    Because they thought they were slick. But now they are busted and it's pathetic watching people squirm around after they know they are busted and probably can't do anything about it. I can imagine these guys with their dreams of what they would do with their booty. Many of them probably are like 15 and thought the money just comes from the Google fairy.

    The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. :D

    I agree mcfox, it's a shame these people didn't find DP instead. Like I said before, If it wasn't for DP members taking the time to explain to me what I was doing wrong 2 years ago, I'd still be working at a car lot for 13 hrs per day. These people got the wrong information from the start and were coaxed into thinking it was okay. After all, monkey see, monkey do.

    I never "coaxed" anyone to click on links fraudlently? How do ANY of you know what i promote in my ebook if you havent bought it. Buy my ebook, read it and u wont find a single line in there that says "ask your friends to clicks your links for free money!"

    75% of the people who buy my ebook DONT even use my forum.

    I am still trying to figure out which page of mine has 9 adsense ads on it? WTF crack are you smoking.

    Hell yea! the more publicity the better. More money in my pocket! Shit i would love to be on 20/20 like xinnik suggested!

    That's not the way I've read the thread. He can't see that by endorsing the actions of his users (by making the thread sticky) he's endorsed ripping off a system that many people participate in to promote their sites, or to fund their sites.

    And I don't think we want to bring him down, I'd be worried if the loss of Adsense meant a life of poverty for anyone! We just want Adsense/Adwords to be used by professionals in a professional manner.

    The thread is gone. The people on my site are making at MOST $6.00 per day because my forum has only been open for 2 months so everyone is new. Most make less than a dollar. So even if someone clicked a few links, it was no more than a few dollars. Its not happening anymore

    so, to extrapolate the idea, shoplifting is ok so long as you don't steal much?

    I was thinking the same thing. People need to realize that these things add up.

    It's not about what you want, it's about how Google run their complaints policy internally. It's been suggested that they wait until just before a payout...

    Just got through speaking with drumminforev. Seems he is just a kid. A very intelligent one at that. He's cleaning up the forum and his ebook. Have to admit, the ebook would be very informative to the newbie since he's cleaning it up. I would have paid 100 bucks for the book a year ago if it didn't have the bad advice on clicking other people's ads. It has a few nice shortcuts even for the above average site developer. Hopefully this has been a wakeup call and he has come back from the dark side. With this kid's smarts, he could easily be making ten times what he is now in a year. He just needs some maturity. Got to admit, I was looking for that easy buck as a kid too.

    Yea, I guess $12,000-$20,000 a month for a few hours a day is "easy" in terms of what is normal

    So i've done my best to clean up my forum and ebook at any references to clicking, direct or indirect. So take a chill pill people, have a beer or something. DAMN.

    You tried to fool a company and publishers. That's all.
    You should know that you can fool anyone sometimes, but you can't fool eveyone all the time.
