Made For AdSense: Yes

"I'm researching to see if Adsense can actually generate revenue. Click Any Ad That Interests YOU!"

For someone who's claiming to do research, he/she certainly didn't research Google's TOS (terms of service) too well.

For anyone who's not familiar with Google's rules, check out the Terms and Conditions and Program Policies. In the policies (as of November 8, 2005), it says:
Web pages may not include incentives of any kind for users to click on ads. This includes encouraging users to click on the ads or to visit the advertisers' sites as well as drawing any undue attention to the ads. For example, your site cannot contain phrases such as "click here," "support us," "visit these links," or other similar language that could apply to any ad, regardless of content.

It probably won't be long before Google cancels that AdSense account.

Update: First Google canceled the AdSense account, then Google (or the blog owner) canceled the blog, so it's gone now.
