It has been my understanding that clicking on someone's ad's would be a big no-no!! Google will ban your account and could also ban the one being clicked upon as well. That is called click fraud according to Google.
So to be on the safe side, not wanting to get banned, I am very careful NOT to click on someone else's ads or my own...
Hopes this helps clear things up!
