    Going through my referrer list... I saw a link that I wasn't familiar with, visited the link, and there it was.

    Sending the abuse report now.

    For all we know it may take this guy 6 months to get to $100 (at which time he will be banned and never get a cent)

    I suspect this is a case of ignorance because there is no way anyone familiar with the TOS would be that blatant

    He changed his message today. Its even worse now lol. I reported him too, but wonder if anything will happen.... I'm gunna follow this one for a couple months and see if the big G actually listens to compaints. What a looser...

    !Update!: Wow guys, if you guys keep this up I can promise you 1 badass forum this time, its only been half a day and we're almost at our goal O_O, Thanks to you all for clicking the ads, if you were to click 1 more time today we should be up soon, but we are not asking you to click since asking you is against the rules, and we wouldnt do that *wink*, the counter reset about an hour ago :) (good thing). And I can guarentee the forums up soon :)

    Get your facts straight. Im not frauding. My website distributes game hacks, and we were using a freeboard and got screwed for it. Now we bought IPB 2.1.4 instead of vBulletin, the ad will be gone in about 1 hour.

    Anyways nice try, but next time get the facts before talking shit. :D

    Thanks Stranger who added me to MSN telling me about this, which I wont reveal who. :)

    You're committing fraud because you're asking people to click on your ads. Everyone, on either side of Adsense/Adwords, loses because of stuff like this and you'll find no compassion here.

    Read again. I said I AM NOT ASKING YOU TO CLICK. I said "meanwhile look thru the ads, see something you like check it out".

    I editted it after a few hours cause I remember google doesnt allow it.

    In a way yes Im avoiding saying "Click it!" But google never said "Do not hint your members to click it" They say "Dont tell them to click it" :p

    Lollerz to you buddy. You're not "frauding" but you're requesting that people click the adsense links which is directly against Google's terms of service? How does that compute?

    Dont be a liar, you know you were enticing others to click your ads. Do you really think we at DP are stupid enough to believe you when we have seen it for ourselves? Oh well, I'll be laughin with joy when your adsense account gets pulled you cheap little fraud. Just because you made your money and deleted the information on the page doesn't make what you did right.

    I didnt request, I told them if they like an ad to check out the site, thats not requesting, thats helping the sites out, which is the main purpose of the ads.

    Whats this forum anyways? Just a big snitch forum?

    Edit:
    You may want to watch your mouth before you have no forum to log into. Our little friends who messed with our site has been down for 3-4 days now, dont start pissing us off now.

    Anyways, your report wont work. Google takes 24-48 hours to do anything, well I only had it up less then 24 hours ;)

    You should read the TOS again.

    https://www.google.com/adsense/policies

    BTW, even though you took it down, does not mean a screen shot was not taken prior.

    Screenshots are edittable, especially with a pure white background on the page, also Ill just delete the directory /www/brb, my host is a personal friend he wouldnt admit we ever had the directory ;)

    Oh and yes im on a proxy, dont think checking IP's will help :)
