Do you Yahooooo? These hackers do!

Warez on the net is bad enough. It involves illegal hacking, stolen serial numbers, distribution of costly merchandise, etc. - it's basically bad business. So I guess we should expect sites like this to break the rules of AdSen-- wait a minute! Why should they even be IN the AdSense program?! Look at this snip of the AdSense policies:

Site Content

Site may not include:

  • Hacking/cracking content
  • Any other content that promotes illegal activity or infringes on the legal rights of others

So already, just having AdSense on a hacking/warez site is against the rules. But how about that same site with AdSense and Yahoo ads running at the same time?! Let's go back to the terms:
Competitive Ads and Services
We do not permit Google ads or search boxes accessing Google search services to be published on web pages that also contain what could be considered competing ads or services.

Chalk up another strike! Let's take a look at these offenses all in one nice screenshot:

Note: The ad on the left does say "Ads by Yahoo!" - the site is just using a light colors to almost hide that. I'm sure that breaks a rule as well.

If you'd like, give this site a look. I am not responsible for anything that happens to you or your computer while on this site, and I don't recommend going there too often. Furthermore, they do rotate the ads so you won't always see Google and Yahoo ads on the same page. But feel free to check it out.
