    Ok guy... let be cool down right now..

    Let Google handle this thing... It's a waste we keep arguing with this "mindless people". Nevertheless it will make this "mindless people" keep threating this forum..

    By the way... Not much if we win the mouth battle but the end this "mindless people" DDOS this forum. Hope that it will not happen at all.

    I'm curious, how much is too far?

    For example, I use SiteMeter which runs Google AdSense and here's what they have in their FAQ
    Couldn't that be construed as encouraging it's members and therefore a violation of the TOS?

    Another site, I forget which one (Amazon? About?) had a "Why we have ads" blurb that said basically the same thing "By clicking our ads, you help support this site and therefore our services to you" kind of deal.

    How much is too much?

    What's with this:

    "Final Update
    Good news guys, we have now got the lisence for our forums, saved all members and posts, just trying to modify everything to work good with the new forum. Lots of bugs always happen during a database convert :).
    Someone tried reporting us for ad fraud, What ad? I put an ad here? Guess I didnt notice *winks*.
    Thanks for the support guys, you've helped Curse out ALOT. Expect forums up today, perhaps in an hour or 2 depending on how much shit these bugs give us. :)
    Note: I never asked any of you to click the ads, if you got that idea from the ad being here, sorry, but I would never ask for ads to be clicked ;). Anyways, forums will be up soon, shh. :p"

    I like how you said twice "but i never said to click the ad's" at the end. Learn to be subtle? Might as well have said "Yeah I did it". It had the same effect on me.

    Crap.
    I guess I better download all DP threads to my PC before the site is all lost.
    Well, I guess we will all see each other after shawn gets things running again, lets hope the site doesnt go down for more than a few days. :(

    Yup. The site was down last night. That's why I've been reading this thread all night last night. Because the site was down. Yup. We're dealing with a real super hacker here, guys. Let's all count to 10 and then tremble in fear of the mighty SesshomaruX together. Ooooooooooooooooh.

    :rolleyes: Stupid kids and their delusions of grandeur.

    I must say this was really entertaining, and the blatant ignoring of the accusations, but at the same time semi admitting it.

    I can't believe that google will allow him back into the program, NO way.

    he's going down fast !!!!
