    I don't, no one I know does.

    I never will. I find it hard to grasp how so many people have so many clicks. Are they tricking them into clicking?

    This is my personal opinion but I just don't understand it.

    i have always thought the same way. I am one of those people that avoid ads like the plague. Just remember their are alot of dumb people out there. Just because you would never do it and know alot about the internet doesn't mean they do to. I chalk it up to ignorance.

    We are nothing like the average user. Just take a look at your mom when she surfs the net and you will see...

    Heck, I just had to clean up my girlfriends computer because it was cluttered with all kind of crap, from adware to all kind of toolbars and junk she gathered all over the place

    a big add it's impossible to avoid that get's your attention. a big local ecommerce site had an error in his system for 2 days. all prices had was cut off with 1 digit. instead 1k lucky people bought the products with 100$.. what do you think?

    I completely concur. I also feel the same way about CPA stuff too.

    But I don't argue with the checks I receive from Google.

    I'm not sure if it is the same way with others, but I for one will more likely click an image or flash ad rather than Google text ads. Just catches my attention more.
