There are 2 reasons to click on ads:

1) When you like in the service(which I never am).

2) When you don't like the service/company(happens quiet often).

Big companies/banks pay big rates for pay-per-click ads, especially in big cities and they usually don't have limits.

Every time I see an annoying/deceptive AD or and AD from a company I don't like, I click.

If you're using an AD supported android app, a useful web-site or anything else with ADs, clicking annoying ADs will not only make their publishers pay, it will make them pay to the developers of the app or the web-site!

Lets rid the internet of annoying and deceptive ADs and the corporations behind them!

Anti ad guerilla warfare.

There is a better method to undermine their business model: introduce local currencies and buy/sell locally produced goods.

Hidden, Glen Reynolds at the libertarian web site Instapundit makes a nice chunk of money this way by linking constantly to Amazon in his posts. But using your strategy also makes a lot of money roll into big time Madison Avenue advertising firms rater than individual app developers who have already made all the money they are going to make from the same firms. Also, big banks all have in house PR and advertising people, and you are certainly making them look good, because their success is solely measured by the number of "hits" they get.
