AdSense "Super Cheater"

I am not one to normally report spam, but this was too funny to not bring to your attention. A thread at DigitalPoint forums named Check this Super Google Cheater! uncovers a Web site that is basically distributing "263 Commercial Web Scripts". In the "old days", I remember a friend showing me how to pirate software. He clicked from place to place, required to click on banner ads, this was before AdSense but during the times of pay per click or impression banner ads, when they were paying out lots and lots of money before the dot com boom. Each click gave you a piece of the password to get you to the final destination for software download. Along the way you clicked on three to ten banner ads, where the pirate would earn a nice PPC bid.

In this case, its simple, the user asks you to click on two buttons that open up AdSense ads, he asks you to click on them (but in reality you do not have to) and then you can download the file at the end. The site can be found in the thread, I have captured a screen shot of it for your viewing pleasure here.
