Source Title:
AdSense policies change made for blog spam crackdown?
Story Text:

Of course it's all very well putting a claus in the Adsense terms that appears to cover blog spam, but how do Google intend to enforce that? - Stand by for more "report this site" type stuff i reckon...

In addition, publishers may not bring unnatural attention to sites displaying ads through unsolicited mass emails or unwanted advertisements on third-party websites. These activities are strictly prohibited in order to avoid potential inflation of advertiser costs.

Jen isn't 100%, but i am - that means blog spam, can't be much else. (unless they mean Autolink? haha! thanks your_store :)

Could also cover using spyware to spawn ads

There's a company that was advertising in the marketingvox newsletter last year, marketing itself as a contextual advertising network. A few phone calls clarified that their audience consisted of teens downloading games that installed spyware that spawned your ads whenever they did a google or yahoo search.
