-ONE BIG ERROR.
If they indeed are pay per click adds (like the article says), do you really think that 50 out of 1000 are going to click those adds. Especially on a website like this. NO WAY! NO DAMN WAY!

Jo5h 130 grains = 13 page views
spywarebanisher 600 grains = 60 page views
borat_sagdiyev 400 grains = 40 page views
thrashshredder 760 + 40 grains = 75 + 2 page views
THEpiGUY 4000 grains = 200 page views
mammikoura 400 grains = 20 page views
mark thorpe 14340 grains = 717 page views
Fisher 1240 grains = 62 page views
Jesusfrk611 3100 grains = 155 page views

total = 1344 page views. So probably at least 1500 since I doubt everyone got it right every time. So about 1500 page views, which surely means that our members clicked on the ads 75 times. Right!?

So, did anyone actually click on the adds even once?
