    "Get a life" department.

    Either type of click fraud can be accomplished with the use of automated “robots” or by hiring an army of workers. The India Times reported in 2004 that a “growing number of housewives, college graduates, and even working professionals across metropolitan cities are rushing to click paid Internet ads to make $100 to $200 per month.”

    Isn't all advertising bogus anyway? Any merchant who pays
    for "clicks" may as well be buying fairy dust. When they realize this
    it will be the end of the web as we know it. And that will be a good
    thing, IMO.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    I just think this is hilarious...

    Since IMHO advertising is a scam, the fact advertisers are getting scammed is wonderful..

    unfortunately not quite so. Some ad companies did pay users for clicks/views. They paid something like 2 cents a click, 1 cent a view....and they paid up at end of month. The views/clicks had to be from different machines, so refreshing your website every 2 seconds did not get you any extra money ....but they went out of business very quick
