The answer to this may be out there, but we can't seem to find it. We visit certain hubs, and would like to check out the ads on that hub, but are we allowed to click on other hubbers ads?
You can click other hubber's ads if you are genuinely interested in the product being advertised. Do this very sparingly, so I'd save the clicking of other Hubber's ads for only those which I am MOST interested in.
Of course you can click other hubber's ads but only if you have no connection or personal relationship with the writer or hubber. Clicking each other's ads is against Google terms or other PPC program, most especially if you know the writer who has the ads in her/his web pages.
You may click but not to anyone's advantage or purposely clicking for the earnings revenue. Google is watching or monitoring the volume of your activities or clicks and if you are clicking hundred times everyday in that the same spot or web page, be ready to get banned soon without notice or question.
I personally stay away from clicking the ads in the same website where I am also a member to stay safe from click fraud, not even if I am honestly interested with the products that being displayed in the ads.

I understand what you are saying-- and though clicking an ad occasionally, out of personal interest,(or by mistake) may not hurt-- I would not ever risk it.
Usually, you can use the key words from the ad to do an independent search (not directly from HubPages), if you are interested in a certain product or service.
Risking your account forever is not worth your interest in an advertisement.

I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that some people are afraid to do this for fear of reprisal for being click happy...

Can it go against Google rules if they have deliberately done this thinking they are helping you? I am worried because I just had a comment posted saying "thumbs up and adsense."

Here's something for you guys to consider, and I am simply reiterating a comment I made on another post. You need organic traffic to your Hubs! Why? If you are using adsense, or any other monetization method on Hubpages, you will not, I repeat, you will NOT get credit for clicks on your ads from...
