    and there are 100's more just like those. And they all look exactly the same..

    Now, for how I came to know of these.. I also have an Adwords account, and I had an ad campaign going for one of my sites. One day, I decided to turn on content sites, and see what happened, unfortunately the 2-3 hour delay in stats updates for adword performance really did me in, because by the time I saw the stats coming through, my jaw hit the floor and I immediately turned off content sites. (Google definitely needs faster stats updates).

    So next, I wanted to see where all these visits were coming from, so I looked at my logs and checked the referring pages, and I found a bunch of these with completexx.php in them, so I started checking them out 1 by 1, and noticed that they all had the same layout, and appeared to all be owned by the same crook!

    So I did some searches, found over 100 of them, with many more listed, and I sent an email to Google about it, along with a list of the 100 or so URL's I gathered. They said they would look into it.

    THAT WAS ALMOST A MONTH AGO hehehehe!!

    I have since revisited the list I sent them and all of those sites are still functioning, still using adsense, and I'm sure still draining advertising budgets left and right!

    Now, am I just seeing this all wrong? Am I wrong in saying that these sites are blatant violations of the adsene TOS?
