I really don't even see the ads, unless they are for 2WT or something like that!

From Google's website:

How do I get paid?
You get paid whenever someone on your site clicks on one of the AdSense ads. Advertisers can also bid to appear on your site on a CPM (cost per thousand impressions) basis. Both CPC and CPM bids compete in our AdWords program to ensure that you optimize your ad revenue.
That's how it works, however rules prohibit me from persuading, suggesting or encouraging members to click for the sake of clicking. Click if you're interested in the Ad. They are custom tailored for our site in most cases.

hmm, so if I told one of my gaming autoclickers to sit there all day everyday clicking ads on TWF, we could make a fortune for the site?

No, they'd revoke my account for fraud. Google is very strict about their ads and accounts. For instance, I cannot click on the ads.

Then we don't want to do that, now do we?

I stopped clicking on ads YEARS ago because of spyware and crap. How can we be sure that these ads don't contain any spyware, adware, etc.?

Well I'll tell you this those cheesy Date-me ads don't get clicked... but some of the bike related ads get interesting at times....

You can never be sure that the linked site won't give you the drips...Because of unscrupulous people, so you just have to protect yourself.. and be careful

Click if you want, I'm just saying that bots and things of that nature will get my account suspended. Google is very selective of their advertisers too, I'd be very surprised if any of their advertisement links contained spyware.

Just know, if you like an ad and click you're helping the site. If it doesn't interest you, don't click!
