Waaa...I accidentally clicked on an ad! Is that bad? It was an accident. TT^TT
...You don't have AdBlock? Well, your potential problems can be solved in a few easy steps...
Step 1: Find, download, and install Avast!, Malwarebytes, and/or AdAware. Having all three is overkill, but as they say, there is no kill like overkill.
Step 2: Run them all in Full Scan mode (not at the same time, obviously). Put on a movie or something while you wait for each one to finish.
Step 3: Every week, run them all in Quick Scan mode, just to be safe.
Step 4: Get AdBlock and NoScript, and you'll almost never have to worry about this crap ever again.
@zelkiito oh ok. thanks but that's just a lot of work. What we're talking about here is just "1" accidental click that actually rarely happen.

I just clicked one of my own ads by accident. Has anyone ever done this? Do you know if I will get an instant ban or is there a degree of tolerance to this? Surely it happens occasionally to many people. Am a bit worried about it. Thanks.

I recently published a Hub last night and while reading it again this morning, I accidentally clicked on a banner ad that was at the bottom of it. I know that Adsense frowns upon clicking on your own ads, and this is honestly the first time that I've ever done that. I'm so worried that they'll...
