Howard Tayler Accused of Google Ads Click Fraud!

Howard Tayler, creator of Schlock Mercenary and enthusiastic advocate of Google Ads, has been paradoxically accused of click fraud by Google Ads itself.

Howard says: "Google Adsense was working swimmingly until last Thursday morning, when Google emailed me and suspended my account for "invalid clicks." "... "It is possible that well-meaning fans simply outdid themselves and clicked too much. It is also possible that Darth Hackamous and his army of clickdroids deliberately targetted my account."

"Google's Terms of Service allow them to say nothing further on the matter, and they've said lots of that. At this point the only people I have enough information to get angry at are nameless Google employees whose employer can sue me for defamation thanks to these same Terms of Service. "

In other news, another notorious webcomic artist reportedly accused Tayler of including unrelated meta-keywords on his site meta-tags.

And from Blank Label's main page meta: "Netflix, Blockbuster Online, Hollywood Video, DVD, VHS, Movie Rentals, Xbox, PSP, Sony, Warcraft"

That breaks the Google TOS.

But did Blank Label submit their site to Google, or did Google just happen to find it? If it's the latter, then Blank Label never agreed to the TOS and don't have to abide by it.

There are many benefits of home ownership to consider, most
