  •  I don't know what you (4.00)
    plan on accomplishing by doing this.

    Dobson fans probably support whipping innocent little things.

    •  A waste of money really (4.00)
      Some wingnut site will find it and give you a ton of hits and a huge bill out of spite.

      A google bomb is funny enough.  Money would be better spent on Katrina victims than making google rich.

      Funny idea though, just not practical.

      •  Waste of money (none)
        The millions of dollars spent on the John Kerry campaign could have been better spent on Katrina victims too. All for nothing.
      •  clicking abuse (none)
        Just for general info. Google adwords does try to identify abuse and does not charge for those clicks. More at link.

        ... Our proprietary technology analyzes clicks and impressions in an attempt to determine whether they fit a pattern of use intended to artificially drive up an advertiser's clicks or impressions, or a publisher's earnings.

        The goals of our system are to automatically identify clicks generated by unethical users and automated robots and to filter out these clicks before they ever reach your reports. However, if we believe you've been charged for invalid clicks in the past two months, we'll apply a credit to your account.

        Google has three powerful tools for protecting your clicks:

        Detection and filtering techniques: Each click on an AdWords ad is examined by our system. Google looks at numerous data points for each click, including the IP address, the time of the click, any duplicate clicks, and various other click patterns. Our system then analyzes these factors to try to isolate and filter out potentially invalid clicks.
